Stogumber. A pretty village in West Somerset. It is a conservation  area in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Has a station on the South West Railway. This is a volunteer line that runs from Bishop's Lydeard to Minehead.

Bath Perhaps one of the best known towns in Somerset. Known for its Abbey, its Roman Baths and its beautiful Georgian architecture. More than that though it is a lovely town in a beautiful area of Somerset. there is a lot to see in Bath. Makes a great break.

Wellington edges the Blackdown Hills which are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty so the town makes a great place from which to tour. Visit Wellington Monument, which is that tall structure on the highest point of the hills, dedicated to Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington who won the Battle of Waterloo.  The Duke took the name Wellington after the town. The town itself is a small industrial one. 

Wells is a most delightful small city and well worth the visit. Sizewise it is a small town, but in England years ago if the town has a cathedral it was a city. So Wells is a city. Why not indeed, it is certainly a lovely place with great heritage. 

Shepton Mallet. A small rural town really, but a tourist destination because of the Bath & West Showground nearby and as a centre for touring the Mendip Hills. It is clear that Shepton Mallet is an ancient market town.

Bristol, a gateway to the South West, road, rail, air and sea. There is always plenty going on in the city itself. It is a bustling, industrial city with an important history. Tobacco has left its mark on the city for some of the buildings were erected by the Wills family, descendants of whom still live in nearby North Somerset.
