Shepton Mallet. It might be a small rural town, but it is a tourist hotspot. Home of the Bath & West Showgrounds, that most popular of showgrounds in the south west and the town is also a gateway to the lovely green hills of Somerset, the Mendips. The footpath East Mendip Way passes the town. 

Weston Super Mare famous for its wide beach that goes out to sea a long way. Not much fun further out as it changes from a pleasant, safe, sandy beach to a muddy dangerous mess. The Grand Pier has recently been rebuilt after a fire. The town itself is a congenial Victorian town of grey stone with plenty of accommodation and good shopping, Beach lawns make the place most attractive.

Pilton on the edge of the Somerset Levels and the site of the Glastonbury Festival.  It is a small rural village that apparently as legend goes was where Joseph of Arimathea landed in Britain. The village was on a tidal lake those days.

Yeovilton, home to RNAS Yeovilton and the Fleet Air Arm Museum which is open all year round. The village is not far away from the Exeter to Lincoln Fosse Way, Yeovilton Weir is an attractive area.

Highbridge is a little market town on the Somerset Levels. the Brue Estuary Path which is part of Sustrans NCN 33 runs through Highbridge. 

Dunster is in the Exmoor National Park and on the Bristol Channel coast, not far from Minehead. Dunster Park and Heathlands are an Area of Scientific Interst. Dunster Castle overlooks the village from its perch on a steep hill. Nowadays the Castle is operated by the National Trust. 

Taunton, the county town, looks back to its heritage and forward to its future. It is a lovely town and won the Britain in Bloom Award in 2008 which was well deserved. The County Cricket Club and Taunton Race course live here. Beautiful Vivary Park hosts the Taunton Flower Show.
