lonelyplanet.com BRISTOL, BATH & SOMERSET •• Somerset
There’s a kaleidoscopic feel to the southwest’s uppermost corner. Part rural escape, part
coastal retreat, part historical textbook, it presents multiple faces to the visitor: one minute
you’re travelling through a pastoral hotchpotch of cornfields, copses and willow-shaded
bridleways, and the next you’re steaming over a humpbacked hill, plumbing the depths of
a limestone cavern, or tracing the curve of a windblown coastline. The accents may be laced
with a burr that’s thicker than butter, but don’t be fooled into thinking this is a backward
corner of Britain; the stately cities of Bristol and Bath have been setting trends, breaking
rules and educating the rest of England for centuries.
It’s a county of collision, where wild hill meets tourist town, Georgian crescent meets
cobbled street and thatched cottage meets city skyline. Bristol – a gateway to the region –
and Bath are essential stops, but Somerset’s also the traditional home of cider, Cheddar
cheese and Britain’s tiniest city. In the east are the Mendips and Quantocks, choice walking
country and a source of poetic inspiration for Messrs Coleridge and Wordsworth, while the
centre of the county conceals the frying-pan flats of the Somerset Levels, a watery wetland
and twitcher’s paradise. Smack bang in the middle looms the emerald hump of Glastonbury –
King Arthur’s legendary resting place, the realm of a faerie king and the home of everyone’s
favourite musical mudfest. Out to the west, straddling the border with Devon, is Exmoor,
Britain’s oldest national park, where red deer stalk the hilltops, wooded coombes tumble
seawards and trailheads crisscross the cliffs. Savour the sights, sip some scrumpy or get all
spiritual – Somerset’s a treat for the senses.
