    Architecture

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Soemthign I really love about this county's architecture and building style is the material they use.

    Much of the historical buildings are made of limestone... and when the whole town has this lovely stone, it lends a wonderful ambiance.

    There is gothic and georgian architecture around, especially in Bath... elegant, with clean lines.

    Wells High Street

    by Jenniflower Updated Aug 30, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The High Street has everything you might need, retailers, coffee shops etc... and it is very pretty too!

    At the one end there is an awesome sight too... that's where the entrances to Wells Cathedral and The Bishop's Palace, alongside the cathedral, is.

    In front of the Bishop's gates was a bustling market... I am tempted to say village market as it certianly has that feel to it... but as Wells IS a city, I had best call it a city market! :)

    Quaint, huge photo potential, we will definately come back here!

    Our Route Through Somerset

    by Bwana_Brown Updated Jan 25, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This map shows our latest Christmas, 2005 trip in Blue as we took the northerly route to Cornwall, while the Black route is the way we travelled during our February, 2004 visit.

    On this latest trip, Day 2 of the drive saw us leaving Bradford-on-Avon (red circle) just outside Somerset's eastern boundary as we drove westward through the Cheddar Gorge (pointer) and finally along the north coast into Exmoor National Park, shown in green. Just before entering Exmoor, we diverted northward onto the coast for a pub meal at the small harbourside town of Watchet.

    The day ended with the sun rapidly falling as we exited Somerset inside the western edge of Exmoor, leaving us to spend the night in Barnstaple (orange circle), Devon. With the short winter days, we had to rush a bit during this day's drive, because we had to be near Land's End in Cornwall by the following afternoon - and we did succeed in meeting that goal!
