About Somerset

The County of Somerset can be located in the South-West of England. Somerset boasts some beautiful market towns and villages. Taunton, the county town offers both beautiful countryside and excellent shopping and leisure facilities and is known to hold one of the largest cattle markets in the country. The small yet thriving market town of Glastonbury, famous for its annual pop festival - 'Glastonbury Festival' has a wide range of facilities and attractions including the remains of one of the greatest Abbeys in England, Glastonbury Abbey is set in 37 acres of beautiful parkland. The very unique 'Cheddar gorge', britains largest gorge, is steeped in fascinating historical and archeological
facts such as the discovery of a 9000 year old skeleton, Britain's oldest complete skeleton. Minehead, Somerset's largest seaside resort is set on the edge of Exmoor National Park and is a perfect place to visit for traditional seaside family fun. Somerset is also home to the smallest city in England - Wells, which has one of the most beautiful cathedrals in England.
