Enjoy miles of beautiful coastline, moors, levels, beaches and caves

Welcome to Somerset!

Somerset is the county with everything, a county of contrasts. Although it’s the seventh-biggest county in the UK, its relatively small population means that there’s lots of space to explore and enjoy days out along its beautiful coastline and in its quintessentially-English countryside.

Maybe you’re a foodie? Then you’ve come to one of the best places in England. Our guide to the county’s world-class eating establishments, from fine dining to gastropubs (as well as the best cider producers) is a must read. Shopaholic? It doesn’t get much better than this region with many independents shops, so have a browse of our recommendations for the best shopping. Somerset’s cultural life is also apparent as soon as you hit the county. After all this is the home of Glastonbury Festival, probably the most famous music festival in the world.

Whatever it is you’re looking for in Somerset, let our informative blogs help shape your travel plans!
