Famous for more than just being the home of cheddar cheese, it’s fair to say that Somerset, as a county, contains some of the southwest of England’s most desirable places to visit. Top of the tree is the city of Bath, world famous for its Roman history, stunning architecture, and healing waters.
Exmoor National Park, the majority of which is in Somerset, offers a landscape rich in beauty, and endless in opportunity for outdoor activity lovers.
Communities such as Wells, England’s smallest city, Glastonbury, arguably England’s most alternative town, and Taunton, the county town of Somerset, all have plenty to offer to the visitor, and there’s plenty of beautiful countryside and dramatic coastline to explore too.
Historic, romantic, bookish and cultural, Bath is a city for thinking minds and avid sightseers. Its architectural beauty and rich heritage have earned the entire city UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
The picturesque and historic town of Glastonbury has roots steeped in the myths and legends relating to its famous Tor, King Arthur, the Holy Grail and Joseph of Arimathea as well as being legendary in a more modern sense for lending its name to the internationally renowned Glastonbury Festival.
