Carnival is a West Country tradition, with many Somerset towns hosting smaller carnivals from August to December. However, Somerset has a lot more to offer its visitors and autumn is the perfect time for a short break in the Countryside while visiting the Carnival of your choice.
Take a trip underground and experience the delights of Cheddar caves or Wookey Hole. Spend a day exploring the coast at Weston- Super-Mare, Burnham-On-sea or Clevedon. Get acquainted with the magical Mendip Hills and learn more about the fact & fiction surrounding Glastonbury, the seat of Christianity in England. Help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the oldest area of outstanding beauty – The Quantock Hills. Visit one of the many historic Market Towns and Villages, such as Axbridge, Frome, Shepton Mallett and Nether Stowey. Wells, England’s smallest and Somerset’s only City, has one of the finest Cathedrals in the Country.
Whatever your interests, one of our friendly Tourist Information Centres will be able to give you all the help you need to find the right place to stay and give you lots of ideas for days out too.
Also visit our featured businesses on the left under "The Best North Somerset Businesses." Here you will find a whole host of local businesses whether you are looking for somewhere to stay, somewhere to eat, somewhere to go, somewhere to shop....
Somerset really does have something for everyone!
