Somerset is a county in South West England which is popularly known because of either the city of Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage site, or the famous mid-summer Glastonbury Festival. It is typographically characterized by its network of caves, gorges, rivers, wetlands and moors. The rich composition of the area makes it highly suitable for fruit orchards, vegetable fields and other agricultural activities. With this bounty, of course, comes good local food and drinks. Somerset boasts of its tasty cheddar cheese – so much that it even has a cheese show! Make sure to check with the local information guide which of the many country shows are being celebrated during your stay to see and appreciate Somerset’s plentiful produce.
Homes and gardens in the county are sights to behold on their own. Awe-inspiring cathedral architecture blends well with the naturally stunning landscape of England’s gem. From the tallest powered fountain to the smallest church in England – just how diverse can Somerset get? A lot of the destinations in the area call for the tourists to be one with nature.
