The Bishop’s Palace has been the home to the Bishops of Bath and Wells since 1206, after Bishop Jocelin Trotman received the licence to build the palace south of the cathedral. The palace is well maintained and features a Jacobean staircase and Victorian Gothic rooms where you can see the Coronation Cape and the Glastonbury Chair.
