Its cultural identity and long traditions of fishing and mining have shaped the landscape whilst the quality of the light and the magnetism of the sea have drawn artists and travellers in more recent times.
Somerset Levels, Mumps, Moors and Legends
Somerset has some of the most varied and enigmatic landscapes in England. Known for its cheese and cider and its myths, legends, folklore and even biblical connections. Dotted with unspoilt villages, quiet towns, bustling seaside resorts and the splendid, very English glory of the city of Wells, it is a surprising and charming county to visit.
The New Forest
The New Forest, a National Park, was once a hunting ground for Norman kings. This unique landscape retains its medieval character of wide heathlands and mature oak forests. The foresters still follow ancient farming practices that allow their ponies, the architects of the forest, to roam free all year. The ancient local towns, thatched cottages and the forest’s coastal edge make this a day of contrasts and variety.
