Explore Somerset

The county of Somerset is home to famous names such as Cheddar, Glastonbury and Wells, all easily accessible by road and public transport from Weston-super-Mare.

Wells, famous for the Cathedral and The Bishop's Palace & Gardens, is quintessentially English, and is the smallest city in England.  Lined with cobbled streets, shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants it is most definitely worth a visit during your stay in Weston-super-Mare.

Glastonbury, probably most famous for its music festival, is a beautiful part of Somerset, with the Tor and Abbey and plenty of gorgeous green countryside.  If retail therapy is your thing, then Clark's Outlet Village offers a superb day out at the shops, with many famous names including Joules, White Stuff, Next, Marks & Spencer and French Connection all at discount prices, as well as many branded places to eat and drink.

Cheddar Gorge and Caves and the Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company are popular places to visit, and Cheddar itself is a quaint little village with a stream running through, tea rooms, gift shops and a traditional ice cream parlour.

The lively neighbouring seaside resorts Brean and Burnham-on-Sea are Somerset's main seaside towns with their expanse of golden sands, holiday parks and fun parks, offering attractions such as Brean Leisure Park, Brean Play and Brean Splash.
