Somerset is a treasure trove of extraordinary day trips if you know where to look. With the summer coming, we’ve been around the office asking all our colleagues their favourite Somerset day trips and why!

Toby: It doesn’t get much more Somerset than Glastonbury Tor! An easy climb with a spectacular view, this trip is perfectly accompanied by tea and cake surrounded by the magic of Glastonbury town once you return from the Tor.


Charly:It’s got to be Cheddar Gorge for me! Great cheese, stunning countryside and a babbling stream to explore.

Carol: There’s no better way to be immersed by the beautiful Somerset countryside than a walk around the stunning Cheddar Reservoir. Providing a flat walk for all abilities. For a more coastal feel, I like to escape to Porlock in Exmoor National Park. This secluded spot is ideal for a sunny day.

Lucy: You can’t come to Somerset and not visit Bath. Brimming with history, Bath is the perfect picturesque Somerset trip – and has to be accompanied by a meal and maybe a few drinks. You can’t go wrong with the selection of restaurants available too!


Paul: For a day of good food and drink, I am always partial to a visit to Wells. With rich history and beautiful countryside, Wells boasts a wealth of incredible food and drink that’s worth making a day out of!

Zoe: Perfect for a browse, I love a visit to Frome! It has a wonderful charm to it and is full of a myriad of fabulously quirky streets to wander.

Rosie:As a Glastonbury Festival lover, my favourite place to wander has got to be the Glastonbury Festival site just off Pilton. Not just a beautiful walk, you can find some parts of the festival still hanging around. The Crown in Pilton is also a lovely location for a quick pint afterwards!
