The land of the summer people! This county used to flood before it was drained by the monks of Glastonbury Abbey. It has become a county of lush landscapes, beautiful towns and villages, and England’s smallest city!

Highlights in Somerset are Glastonbury, for it’s famed Abbey and new age population, and Wells for its beautiful Cathedral and Bishop’s Palace.

Where pilgrims once came to Glastonbury Abbey to visit the alleged burial place of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere, the town today is now dominated by the new age movement. Nearby Wells, however, is a medieval marvel known for its Cathedral, Bishop’s Palace, and natural springs.
