View from Bats Castle to Dunkery Beacon

Ten thousand acres of beauty and history. Surrounds Dunster Castle, a strategically important castle on the eastern edge of Exmoor National Park. Remodelled in the nineteenth century.

Wookey Hole

Caves located in the Mendip Hills AONB that have been used by humans for 50,000 years. Impressive tours and museum. Heaving with visitors in summer.

Glastonbury Tor

The birthplace of King Arthur? Perhaps not but a very famous UK landmark well worth climbing for its panoramic views.

Wells Cathedral

Famous for the scissor arches that support the cathedral's central tower. Take time to look at the west front that contains some of the finest statuary in Europe.

Bishop's Palace

A Bishop's Palace just behind the cathedral surrounded by a moat, high walls and a drawbridge. A treat.

Royal Crescent

One of the UK's most famous Georgian buildings within the Bath UNESCO World Heritage Site. No 1 Royal Crescent is a museum.

Roman Baths

Built by the Romans on the only naturally occurring hot springs in the United Kingdom. Over a million people visit every year.

Dunkery Beacon and Hill

The highest point on Exmoor National Park with views across the Bristol Channel to south Wales. Great place to be in the snow!

Farleigh Hungerford Castle

Not well known but a West Country treasure. A castle ruin with fascinating display rooms and a magnificent chapel.

Cheddar Gorge

The UK's largest gorge and home to 'Cheddar Man'. Excellent walking country. Caves, bus tours and the obligatory touristy shops.
