A landmark for visitors to Exmoor, Upton Tower is the only remaining part of a 14th-century church. The church fell out of use in the Victorian period when a new church was built by the main road through Upton village in 1867, and the body of the old building was eventually pulled down, leaving only the tower, sometimes called Upton Old Church.

One of the finest early Gothic cathedrals in Europe, Wells is famed for its extraordinary west front, replete with carved statues of Biblical figures, and for its superb chapter house, reached by a worn, curving set of stone steps. The nave is braced by unique scissor vault, pierced by huge round eyelets. In the north transept is a 14th century mechanical clock. The best views of the cathedral are from the moated Bishop's Palace next door, home of the powerful bishops of Bath and Wells since the 10th century.
