Somerton, Somerset

It’s easy to while away a couple of hours browsing around Somerton whilst enjoying your holidays in the UK. This peaceful Somerset market town has a very quiet air but you'll find plenty to do; admire the fine architecture of 17th and 18th century houses made from the locally quarried blue lias stone, see the historic covered market cross in the square. Pootle around the antiques centre or the ACE Arts Gallery, check out the large display of cigarette cards at the London Cigarette Card Company, stroll through Midney Gardens. If you fancy a slice of seriously good cake go and grab a table at the Courtyard Cafe, for lunch, the White Hart is excellent.

Anglers will find good sport at the Viaduct Fisheries on the edge of town, shopaholics will have to venture slightly further to Clarks Village in Street, and if you're the spiritual sort go to Glastonbury and take in the tranquillity of the Abbey ruins and the Chalice Well Gardens.
