Bath is arguably the jewel in Somerset’s crown, it’s a city with World Heritage status, the famous Roman baths and spas and the glorious architecture of the Royal Crescent.
Wells is England’s smallest city but is packed with historic interest from its landmark Gothic cathedral to the moated Bishop’s Palace. Taunton is Somerset’s county town and a top destination for shopping, dining and entertainment.
The county is peppered with smaller towns and villages, national parks in abundance, heritage sites such as Stonehenge and national monuments such as Glastonbury Tor.
