Balloon Flights in Somerset
The county of Somerset is rich in rural beauty, with a varied landscape that include flat areas like the Somerset Levels and undulating stretches of land such as the Mendips and Exmoor National Park, as well as a splendid coastline. It is thought that Somerset was inhabited by humans as long ago as the Palaeolithic era and, today, it is a mainly agricultural area that is known for cattle and sheep farming, the production of delicious cheeses, and traditional crafts like basket weaving. Historically, the county was famous for its apple orchards, and cider is still produced in Somerset today.
