The pretty high street is known for its being the setting in comedy movie ‘Hot Fuzz’ and is only a short drive to Glastonbury to which local residents get priority access to tickets! The store is nestled between independent shops and boutiques and enjoys a prominent location with continuous high footfall. Pay and display, plus free parking is available close by too.


The store itself is a grade two listed building, so you can expect some attractive features that you would not normally see in some of our other Specsavers stores! Expect high ceilings, marble fireplaces and stained glass throughout. This 4-test room store is split across three floors, with the top fourth floor dedicated to the colleague’s room, kitchen, and large Director’s office. All enjoy stunning views of Wells Cathedral!
