Somerset Attractions

Be amazed at the sheer diversity of places to visit

Be they natural – like our long sandy beaches – or manmade – like our magnificent country homes, there are attractions aplenty in Somerset to suit all ages and interests. As well as the coast and countryside, we have caves and canals; offering plenty of opportunities for adventure or quiet contemplation. The beauty of the natural attractions, such as our bird reserves, is that they have something to see whatever the season whether it is visiting waders in winter or breeding bitterns in the spring.

Attractions designed to amuse and thrill the whole family include three seaside piers, aquaria, zoos, steam railways and fun parks. If it is culture you are after, there are abbeys, museums and art galleries. England is famous for its gardens and Somerset is particularly well represented with some of the finest in the Country open to visitors.
