Amazing Attractions and so much more!

Somerset has some of the largest curated collections in the UK. These range from cars exhibited at Hayes International Motor Museum at Sparkford to Naval Aircraft at the Fleet Air Arm Museum in Yeovilton. At the other end of the scale, we have a museum dedicated to the bricks and tiles for which Bridgwater was once famous and the tiny King John’s Hunting Lodge which is a Tudor house in Axbridge crammed with local artefacts. Appropriately, there is a Boat Museum in the old port of Watchet; a Willows and Wetlands Centre on the Levels; a Fashion Museum in Bath; a Rural Life Museum in Glastonbury and The Somerset Museum in the County town, Taunton. What might be more surprising is that that there is a museum about coal mining in Radstock, one about flight in Chard and one about America in Bath – you will have to visit them to find out why!
Collections can be out of door as well as under a roof and Somerset has numerous fine gardens open to the public, some of which have collections of rare plants such as The Walled Garden of Cannington. There are also collections of rare animals at the South-West’s largest zoo, Noah’s Ark at Wraxall.
