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.
