World-wide, our County is famous for its Glastonbury Festival, illuminated carnivals, Mulberry handbags and Arthurian Legends. There is more! This guide is here to help you discover more of what this amazing county, one of the largest in the UK and largely rural, has to offer. Whether this is your first visit, whether you return to us year after year or whether you live in Somerset, we are sure there will be surprises among these pages and ideas that will lead to some unforgettable experiences and lasting memories. As we said, Somerset is a big place and its boundaries have changed over the years. For this guide, we include the magnificent City of Bath over in the east; our National Park, Exmoor in the west; the historic town of Crewkerne on the boundary with Dorset in the south and Portishead, the northern most point on the Somerset Coast. Not content with a National Park, we have four Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. To ease navigation through this guide and the County, we have divided it into four – north, west, south and east. These do not follow administrative districts but in a County of such contrasts, it should help you plan your visit by describing the different character of each and what there is to see and do. The pages that follow give you an overview of each area and a taste of what’s on offer with a map on the centre pages so you can plot your journey to take in a number of different attractions if you wish. We think you will be surprised at the variety of landscape, architecture and culture to be found. From coastal cliffs and sandy beaches to moorland; from cityscapes to village greens and from arts festivals to agricultural shows – Somerset really does have it all.
