Willows and Wetland Centre, Somerset

Willow has been grown on the Someret Levels for generations and here at the Willows and Wetlands Visitor centre you can see it all; displays, a museum and an interactive exhibition that sets out the relationship between this traditional industry and the unique landscape where the willow is grown and worked. Buy a hand woven basket from the shop, stop for a cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake at the Lemon Tree Coffee House, have a stroll around the marked walks; see local crafts and photographs in the galleries, take a guided tour. What gets you most is the sheer tranquility; it's a lovely way to spend a few hours.

Open: Mon-Sat 9.30-5.00, closed Sundays.
