Somerset, England - what is the best place to visit?

.Hi, We are visiting somerset for a short break from mon-fri. We are looking at the best places to visit in this and surrounding areas. Does anyone know of anything worth a visit? We mainly enjoy historical things, attractions to do with animals and we would in particular like to visit a cheese tasting place if there is one in the area? Thanks Im going to Cheddar in somerset.


  1. Somerset is gurt big,depends which part you are off to.Give more detail and we will be there with more info,we are in North Somerset Cheddar Glastonbury and all that. Right, Cheddar.There is still a cheese producer there,the last one,you will have to do a net search. The Cheddar caves might be worth a visit. Wells is an interesting City to visit you may want to tie that one in with a visit to Wookey hole. There is the Retail outlet at Steet on on of the old shoe factory site called Clarks Village. Of course there is weston super mare,but we avoid that. Try Brean down,long beach where the tide is allways out,walk over the hill to the old military fort. Burnham on sea,quaint not exciting but nice seaside town with extensive beach walks. Glastonbury tor. Bath is not far away. Go to sand bay Weston s mare,nice walk over the hill. Tyntesfield at wraxall with a visit to clevedon and see the restored pier. Bristol is close by,with suspension bridge,ss gurt brittan an the maffew and Cabot circus if you want to spend megabucks. Noahs ark zoo farm.near tyntesfield. Secret world animal rescue center near Bridgwater. Longleat one hour away. Really old,silbury hill,avebury,west kennet long barrow,wellow long barrow. My finger is getting tired,that should give you a few bits,there is a lot more.Enjoy.
  2. Wells is a really nice city with a beautiful Cathedral. The Bishops palace has a moat with mute swans that have been taught to ring a bell when they want feeding. Cheddar gorge is quite interesting and if you like caves then a visit to Wookey Hole is a good way to pass a few hours but be warned that the gorge is very commercial and touristy.
  3. Glastonbury could take a day if you walk up to the top of the tor. Another full day visit is Montacute house (see first link)
  4. Lots of nice places in Somerset... But avoid Streete and especially its 'Clarke's village' with its over zealous local traffic wardens that will stick a parking fine on anything! Even with a valid ticket.
  5. Bath is lovely
  6. Make sure you pay a trip to Bristol if you are interested in history! Wells is nice also
