Located opposite the beautiful cathedral green, the picture perfect scenery is ideal for photographs, with the historic arches of the cathedral gardens across the road from our front door, and some wonderful examples of Tudor architecture to be seen at The White Hart itself. Our packages are very reasonably priced, and with prices from just £49 per head, a Wells wedding is a lot more affordable than you might think. The Hart’s Head Room, on the first floor of the hotel, is set up to accommodate up to 120 guests.
All our wedding packages include a complimentary overnight stay for the bride and groom and a generous reduction in our standard rate for guests staying in one of our 14 luxury bedrooms. Should you or your guests be travelling from further afield, why not make the most of our beautiful city and stay to explore? We’re one of the premier hotels near Wookie Hole Caves and Cheddar Gorge, so guests can combine a stay amongst the beautiful scenery of the city of Wells with a visit to some of England’s most iconic tourist attractions. We’re within walking distance of The Bishop’s Palace and Bishop’s Barn, and for fans of retail therapy, we have the traditional market place and high street, offering a mix of independent retailers and big name favourites where you can pick out a wedding gift or souvenir of your stay.
Our central location and great transport links make it easy to combine a wedding at Wells’ White Hart with a visit to one of our local historic towns. Bristol and Bath are less than an hour’s drive away, while Glastonbury can be reached in less than 20 minutes. Wildlife fans can visit Longleat via Nunney Castle, while Wookey Hole is just two miles from The White Hart, and the spectacular scenery of Cheddar Gorge is an easy half-hour drive away. We may be part of Britain’s smallest city, but we can certainly help create your big day exactly as you envisage it, please do contact us if you have any questions.
