Home to the Bishops of Bath and Wells for 800 years this stunning medieval palace is open for all to enjoy. It’s also a two minute walk from The Crown.
There’s so much to do throughout the year, why not spread your visit out over a couple of days or more and stay with us?
The Crown was commissioned to be built by Bishop Bekynton back in 1450 and the relationship with our neighbour flourishes to this day.
