Somerton, Somerset

It’s easy to while away a couple of hours browsing in this peaceful Somerset market town whilst enjoying your holidays in the UK. Admire the fine architecture of 17th and 18th century houses made of the locally quarried blue lias stone, and the interesting covered market cross in the square; pootle around the antiques centre or the Somerset Guild of Crafts, or check out the large display of cigarette cards at the London Cigarette Card Company. If you fancy a slice of seriously good cake go and grab a table at the Courtyard Cafe, for lunch try the White Hart. 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.
