Bath A unique city. The Romans thought so too, that is why they built those Baths from which the city is named. The Georgians left their mark with their outstanding architecture. Then there is Bath Abbey. It is not surprising it is a World Heritage site! Good shopping too!

Keynsham. Set in the pretty Somerset countryside. Makes a good base for touring the area being not far from either Bristol or Bath. The town is on the Chew River and Chew Lake is not far away. Wander round the Mendip Hills and its attractive villages. The town was at one time the home of Cadbury. sadly no longer so. 

Exmoor National Park is in both North Devon and Somerset, the biggest bit being in Somerset. Wild and peaceful. It is a fantastic hilly moorland. miles and miles of it running out to the coast. It includes lots of little places and larger ones like Dulverton, Porlock, Lynton and Lynmouth. All places worth a visit. 

Mells is not too far from Frome.  Mells is a small village.The Colliers Way, Sustrans route NCN24 is close by. There is a lovely walk near the river. A camera would be a useful asset.

Shepton Mallet. Home of the Bath & West Showgrounds, but much more in its own right. It is a pleasant town and it is the Gateway to the Mendips and so a very good touring base.

Why not travel by Coach

If you do decide the leave the car at home and help the environment too, why not go National Express. They run coaches all over the country. Some pretty good fares too.

Just imagine - sit back and relax, no hassling with the traffic!!!

Do you know that you can book on your mobile phone and they will send the ticket as a text!!!!
