The most visited destination in Somerset is the cathedral city of Bath, with its elegant Georgian crescents and the old Roman baths. But if you venture further south you will come across some relatively undiscovered gems, like the city of Wells with its superb cathedral, Bishop's Palace, and intact 14th century street, or mysterious Glastonbury, where the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey stand beneath the famous Tor. Travel further west to the beginnings of Exmoor, or explore Cheddar Caves, or the showcaves at Wookey. These are just a few of the heritage highlights of Somerset - there's a lot more to see!
