Swan Walks in and around Wells


Parks & Walks

Swan Walks

These self-guided walks in Wells and the surrounding countryside were inspired by the Swans of Wells public art display in 2012.

Click on the link to download a map and directions or borrow a map from the shop at the Bishop’s Palace. Due to £150 worth of maps not being returned over a 3 month period you now need to leave a £2 deposit per map. Please note that the swan referred to at the start of the walk has now been relocated to the south west side of the moat.
