Activities and Family Activities in Somerset
Somerset is perhaps best known for its attractions, days out, carnivals and festivals such as the world famous event at Glastonbury or the magnificent carnival in Bridgwater.
If it is peace and quiet you are after there are the wild moors and dark skies of our National Park, Exmoor to consider or the mysterious Somerset Levels where you can cycle or stroll and literally see for miles.
There are attractions to suit all tastes and age groups across the district, from National Trust houses, museums to play barns, zoo and farm attractions plus 2 award-winning coastal piers. Somerset is great for walks, cycling and horse riding, with miles of picturesque coastline and beautiful rural landscapes including part of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
It boasts a range of stunning landscapes which few localities can match, rising from the cattle-grazed meadows of the Somerset Levels to the windswept heights of the majestic Quantock Hills and, further south, the equally striking Blackdowns with their cloak of ancient woodlands.
