A glorious mix of tumbling moors and old market towns, sleepy Somerset is rural England at its best. Beautiful Bath has inspired many literary residents and welcomed many a renowned visitor drawn here by the medicinal hot springs. From our hotel, we delve into Somerset’s glorious heritage, with a day in Bath itself, and excursions to Weston-Super-Mare and the tiny, charming city of Wells.
Day 1: From your local joining point we head south to our hotel in street for our 4 night stay on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis.
Day 2: Today we head for Bath for a complete day to explore. Why not visit the famous baths or enjoy afternoon tea at the magnificent 18th century Pump Room. Marvel at the stunning Bath Abbey, the last of the great medieval churches of England, with unrivalled views of the city, or be intrigued by the Circus, a masterpiece by John Wood, forming the shape of a key when viewed from the air. You could also visit the many museums, including the Jane Austen Centre, the museum of Astronomy or the fashion museum, stroll through the beautiful parks and gardens, or browse the many fantastic shops this picturesque city has to offer.
Day 3: After breakfast we head for the seaside resort of Weston-Super-Mare. With miles of golden sandy beaches and traditional seaside attractions, there is something everyone will enjoy.

Cheddar Gorge & Caves holds many fascinating secrets about our prehistoric ancestors.
Day 4: This morning we head for the Cathedral city of Wells. Nestled in the foothills of the mythical Mendips, the beautiful cathedral city of Wells lies close to the border with Wales and is not far from the iconic Glastonbury. Filled with quirky boutique shops and oodles of cobbled lanes. After free time here, we make our way back to our hotel for the rest of the day at leisure.
