Steeped in history and legend, Somerset is replete with places and sights to experience and the perfect destination for a Winter Warmer break.
Monday We travel to Street.
Tuesday Following breakfast, we enjoy an excursion to Wells. Wells lies sheltered beneath the southern slopes of the Mendip Hills, and is England’s smallest and Somerset’s only City. It has an historic centre, magnificent cathedral, unique moated Bishop’s Palace, Vicars’ Close, St Cuthbert’s Church Hall and a good local museum, all worth exploring.
Wednesday Today we enjoy a visit to Taunton. Taunton is a thriving, forwardlooking town where modern life sits alongside relics of its dramatic past dating back to Saxon times. The Museum of Somerset lies within the 12th century Taunton Castle and tells the county’s story from prehistoric times to the present day.
