Interesting Things To Do in Somerset

There’s plenty of variety in Somerset- from the flat marshlands of the Levels and Moors to the steep cliffs of the Mendips or the rolling landscape of Exmoor, we have plenty to offer.

Somerset is really a rural county within the southwest of England, but there’s more to do than visit farms. This county has a splendid history and provides many enjoyable visiting opportunities.

Wookey Hole caves have been inhabited by humans for 50,000 years and are now reported to be haunted by numerous ghosts. Kids of all ages will delight in the magnificent caves and stories,  hall of mirrors, and crazy golf course. There’s also a large collection of life-size dinosaur models and look out for the witch!

Youngsters will love heading to the Royal Navy museum at Yeovilton. Here, you are able to step on board a British-built Concorde. You are able to also enjoy an experience in a helicopter throughout the working experience.

The rich and delicious custom of cider making is one of the finest traditions of Somerset. Leave the kids at home and appreciate the farm’s traditional,  ciders. Explore antique cider presses and equipment, a walk through the orchards, and a fine lunch of local produce.

Seven delightful beaches lie just beyond the estuary of the River Axe. Throughout the summer, children can enjoy donkey rides on the sand at the large, main beach at Burnham. Enjoy a quiet morning of bird watching at South Beach or the natural boating pool of North Beach, all close to shops and pubs.

This is the UK’s biggest gorge cleaved through the hills northeast from the village Cheddar. At the bottom of the impressive gorge, are the Cheddar Caves. Take tours of Gough’s Cave, Cox’s Cave, walk three miles towards the top from the gorge, or take 274 steps to the top of the lookout tower.

Once, a number of cheese makers offered authentic slabs of Britain’s favourite cheese in Cheddar. These days, the only company left within the village is Cheddar gorge Cheese Organization. Watch the numerous stages of cheese producing, appreciate the tasting bar, and buy some cheese and local pickles to take house.
