20 Priory Road, Wells, BA5 1SY
We’re very easy to find, located in what-used-to-be the old tax office on Priory Rd (most recently the EMI club).
See instructions below, dependent on which direction you’re coming from:
If you’re coming from the North (Bristol)
At the first main traffic lights when you get to Wells, take the left-hand lane down New St. At the mini-roundabout, bear right (second exit) and then at the next traffic lights turn left, into Sadler St which leads onto the High St. Come down the High St and then at the bottom, after the road bends to the left, stay in the left hand lane and carry straight on. At the ‘T’ junction on the corner opposite Kudos nightclub, go straight over and we’re approx 150 metres on the right, just after The Quarterjack pub (Wetherspoons).
If you’re coming from the South (Glastonbury)
When you get to Wells, at the main ‘Tincknells’ roundabout, stay in the right-hand lane and go straight over the roundabout. That’s Priory Rd and we’re approx 150 metres on the left, just after Homechime retirement flats.
If you’re coming from the East (Shepton Mallet)
When you get to Wells, at the main ‘Tincknells’ roundabout go right (3rd exit). That’s Priory Rd and we’re approx 150 metres on the left, just after Homechime retirement flats.
If you’re coming from the West (Cheddar/M5)
At the first main set of traffic lights after reaching Wells, turn right onto Strawberry Way. At the next traffic lights go straight on and then when you get to the roundabout, turn left. That’s Priory Rd and we’re approx 150 metres on the left, just after Homechime retirement flats.
There are various car parks within easy walking distance, including one right next door. They are, in order of distance from us:
Behind Wetherspoons (right next door to us)
Public Pay & Display. This is, we believe, the cheapest (paid) car park in town.
At the rear of Kudos (2 mins walk)
Private Pay & Display. This is just the other side of Wetherspoons.
Beside the bus station (3 mins walk)
Public Pay & Display. This is just around the corner from Kudos. Please note, the bus station and bus depot are different places. This is the station, where the buses drop you off. We’re right next door to the depot, where the buses park overnight and/or are repaired.
Behind The Good Earth cafe (4 mins walk)
Private Pay & Display. This adjoins the bus station car park and you can drive between the two, but one is public and one is private, so please make sure you use the correct ticket machine!!
Morrisons supermarket (approx 5 mins walk)
Up to 3 hours free. You can either walk out of the main exit and along the main road, or walk out of the top of their car park onto Southover (see Google map below). Please note: visitors to Wells can officially use Morrisons car park, up to the time limit imposed, as it was part of their original planning-approval conditions.
Tucker St (approx 5 mins walk)
Public Pay & Display. This is opposite Halfords, just off Strawberry way. Although a little further than the others, it is often overlooked so may have spaces on busy days. Walk out of the main (vehicle) exit and turn right along West St, then when the road starts to turn right into the housing estate, carry on straight ahead (with the retirement homes on your left). Keep walking until you get to the ‘T’ junction with Priory Rd, turn left and we’re approx 100 metres on the left.
