Somerset is an historic land of unique and stunning scenery that combines over 60 miles of varied natural coastline with inland beauty that includes four areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (The Quantock Hills, The Blackdown Hills, The Mendip Hills and Cranborne Chase) and Exmoor National Park.
Major road and rail transport networks weave through the county making it easily accessible from all parts of the UK, for instance just two hours via motorway from London and Birmingham.
Somerset boasts two famous cities, Bath and Wells that both reflect civilisation stretching back thousands of years. Georgian Bath has world-famous architecture and culture attractions including the Jane Austen Centre, reflecting part of one of the most famous authors in the world and her time in Bath, Somerset, this together with the Roman Baths and Costume Museum.
The countryside has many historic sites, gardens and buildings, including Dunster Castle, Montacute House and Barrington Court, taking you back in history more than 500 years latter two being locations for the filming of Wolf Hall, set in the time of King Henry VIII. Dunster Castle provides a majestic view from the West Somerset Steam Railway, the longest heritage railway in the UK, which is a remarkable heritage experience, 22 miles long.
Glastonbury Abbey and the nearby Tor are huge attractions, the former with its legend of King Arthur and Joseph of Arimathea. Nearby in Shepton Mallet is Kilver Court, a designer brand outlet shopping centre and the original home of Mulberry.
There is so much to sample in Somerset, possibly as archaeologists talk of Somerset being the oldest county in the UK.
