Included Sightseeing Excursions

Cider & Scenery

This morning we make our way to Sheppy’s Farm & Cider Centre in the heart of the Vale of Taunton where traditional farmhouse cider is produced. Enjoy a walk around the farm and orchards, visit the Rural Life Museum and partake in a cider sampling at the cider shop. This afternoon there is an opportunity to take an optional ride on the West Somerset Heritage Railway to the popular seaside resort of Minehead where there is time to explore before returning over the especially scenic Quantock Hills.

Caves & Cathedrals

Our full day tour begins with a drive through the Mendip Hills to reach famous Cheddar. Here we visit Gough’s Cave in the heart of Cheddar Gorge for a fascinating self-guided tour of these mysterious chambers dating back over 500,000 years, with formations carved through ice ages, and stories from the Stone-Age. Spend time in the village of Cheddar too, with the local produce readily available to sample before we make our way to Wells, the smallest city in England, and home to one of the most impressive cathedrals.

Somerset by the Sea

A full day to the Somerset coast today,  beginning in the quiet resort of Burnham-on- Sea with a lovely promenade and Britain’s shortest pier. From here we make our way to the ever-popular resort of Westonsuper- Mare with its sweeping bay, level promenade, famous pier and attractive parks and gardens.
