About Somerset

In Somerset you will find a wonderful mixture of heritage, countryside and coast...Nestling in the Mendip Hills, designated an area of outstanding beauty, is Wells – England’s smallest city with a beautiful cathedral. Bristol, on the northern boundary is one of the UK’s most vibrant cities with a thriving harbour side featuring Brunel’s SS Great Britain and Suspension Bridge. Further south, you will be delighted by the quaint villages and stately houses built with honey-coloured stone. This is a county alive with history and legend – see how the Romans took advantage of the hot springs in Roman Bath. Walk in the footsteps of King Arthur and King Alfred, explore Exmoor – home of Lorna Doone and visit the mysterious Glastonbury Tor, rising out of the Somerset Levels (ancient wetlands) like a beacon. Long sandy beaches and coastal resorts such as Minehead, Weston Super Mare or Burnham-on-Sea contrasts with the dramatic rocky Exmoor coastline. Somerset is a cider and cheese country – why not see cheddar cheese being made in Cheddar Gorge or visit a Somerset cider producer to get a real taste of the West Country! This is an area with a vibrant arts and crafts scene where many traditional skills are kept alive such as willow basket making which has been a feature of Somerset life for hundreds of years.
