Local Attractions

Why not call in for a bite to eat while visiting some of Somerset's attractions?

Glastonbury Abbey

Glastonbury Abbey (www.glastonburyabbey.com)

People come to the Abbey for three main reasons...

First, they want to see a living Christian sanctuary that may have been the site of the oldest church, and was certainly once the greatest Abbey, in the country.
Second, they come because they want to see the possible burial place of King Arthur, but the third reason people come to the Abbey grounds is simply for peace and quiet. The relative seclusion of the 36 acres provides the perfect atmosphere for people who want to forget their hectic daily lives, and take it easy.

 

 

Fleet Air Arm Museum

Fleet Air Arm Museum (www.fleetairarm.com)

The National Museum of the Royal Navy comprises four Museums, reflecting the fact that the Royal Navy operates on the sea, under the sea, on the land and in the air.

The Museum has the first British built Concorde which you can go on-board and visit the cockpit. In addition, you will see the Museum's award winning Aircraft Carrier Experience.

 

 

Wookey Hole

Wookey Hole (www.wookey.co.uk)

Somerset, in the South of England, is a land of mysteries. Here at Wookey Hole, where a river flows out of the underworld, pagan and Christian legends intermingle.

Here, too are mysteries of man himself. How did the early cavemen, who inhabited these caves, really live from day to day? And what makes a modern diver explore the caverns beyond the sunlight?

Even the earliest men who lived in the valley of Wookey Hole 50,000 years ago, hunting bear and rhinoceros with stone weapons, must have been in awe of the great caves for they had already existed for millions of years.                                                                                                                           .
