Come and take part in some family activities at Wells Cathedral this summer! There’s something for everyone with trails, treasure hunts and craft sessions on various dates throughout August.

Clues about the incredible stone masons who worked on Wells Cathedral are hidden in the stone, glass, and embroideries. Follow our treasure hunt and see if you can spot them all, collecting tokens along the way.

Discover fonts, streams, stories, and gargoyles as you follow our watery trail around the Cathedral.

Find out more about bugs and birds. Learn how we can help our feathered friends all year round and make a bird feeder to take home. Help us to create a big bug hotel in the Camery Garden.

Did you know that the famous clock in Wells Cathedral is considered to be the second oldest clock mechanism in Britain, and probably in the world, to survive in its original condition and still be in use? Watch the clock strike the hour – complete with its display from the Quarter Jack and jousting knights – and learn about the clock through story and craft.
