Summary

England’s southwest corner awaits - from rolling hills to spectacular coastlines, and from sprawling beaches to dramatic gorges - we see it all. Join us for five days of discovery around some of Somerset's most impressive attractions. Our itinerary includes the break-taking Cheddar Gorge which carves a path through the Mendip Hills, and a trip aboard the steam hauled West Somerset Railway, a heritage line running 20 miles through the picturesque countryside. Gaze upon the rolling Quantock hills, the vast expanse of Exmoor and coastal cliffs as we step back in time to the era of steam travel.

Visit the coastal town of Weston-Super-Mare, home to a glorious sandy beach and the cultural capital of the county - Bath, most famous for its natural baths which date back to the Roman era. The rejuvenating waters of the city are still a big draw, the Thermae Bath Spa, houses the only natural thermal hot springs in Britain in which you can bathe, if you wish to visit booking is required in advance. Hot springs aside the city is overflowing with eateries, quaint shops, museums and galleries.
