Animal Fun in Somerset
Somerset is a rural county and agriculture an important part of life here.
Our landscape lends itself to keeping livestock so there are plenty of cattle and sheep to be seen.
If you are lucky enough to stay on a working farm you will probably be able to enjoy fresh produce such as eggs and cheese and learn more about how our food reaches our plates.
There are also a number of farms open to visitors where children can see the animals at close quarters.
A central feature of rural life is the annual Agricultural Show and several of the main centres in the County have their own such as the Bath and West and the Mid Somerset.
These are great places to see all manner of farm animals from ducks and geese to pigs and bulls.
We also have several horse racing and Point-to-Point courses.
With so many nature reserves, Somerset offers the real prospect of coming across some quite rare animals in their own habitats.
We have roe deer, otters, water voles, dormice and plenty of bats.
For more exotic creatures there are zoos, aquaria, animal parks and even a Safari at Longleat.
