Somerset is a county of moorland, lakes, hills and valleys, towns and pretty villages. Bristol is geographically sort of in Somerset although it has its own governing body. The twin towns of Bath and Wells have attractive architecture and cathedrals. Weston-Super-Mare  and Burnham on Sea are on the coast. Weston has a wide sandy beach and a pier. Tide goes out a long way!

The attractive county town of Taunton is always worth a visit. Makes an excellent centre for touring the county.

Please note that National Express coach services have been suspended due to the current pandemic.

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!!!!
