WHAT TO DO IN SOMERSET
Somerset is situated in the southwest of England; it is a beautiful area with lots of history. I went here for a few days with the family and we managed to explore a lot of the area and surrounding areas. We went to caves, ships and beaches which allowed everyone one of us to have a day that we enjoy. We have a good system in that sense when I go away with the family. Everyone gets one day where they choose where we go. I am always the beach lover and that would normally be on my top things to do in a new place.
Cheddar Gorge was my ultimate favourite place in Bristol; there was so much to do just in that one place. There were caves, canyons, a view top and I cannot forget their cheese! I just remember an endless amount of stairs, a lion statue and taking a million selfies with my brother. We went around on an open bus tour around the canyons as well to see all the different cliffs; there was also one that was shaped like a lion.
This was a cave/garden that we walked around, they were beautiful and lit up in different colours, there was also some cheese being grown in the cave too like Cheddar Gorge. There were funny mirrors and dinosaurs out in the garden which was really fun to get selfies with. When back in the day I would take selfies everywhere.
We had a relaxing day out on this day, walking along the beach and surrounding area of Western-Super-Mare, unfortunately, we didn’t have amazing weather this day so all the photographs are a bit misty. But I am a huge beach lover and any excuse to go to the beach and I’ll be there. But we didn’t let the weather stop us exploring the area, there was a sea aquarium there so we had a look at different types of fish.
Burnham on Sea Beach
This was the cutest beach ever, there was a little lighthouse and donkey rides for children. It really had a family feel. It was close to where we were staying, so we made use of long walks along the beach in the evenings (when the weather permitted it of course) and it was so lovely to be staying in a beautiful area.
SS Great Britain
Another ship, the men obviously chose this attraction. Although when we were on the ship it looked over towards some multi-coloured houses, they looked like the ones of Balamory (you know the children’s TV programme?) so they were interesting to take photographs off.
So the highlight of this was the enormous Jenga game that my brother and I played in the gardens of Dunster Castle, who doesn’t like a game of Jenga? I loved this castle, it was situated on the most beautiful land and the photography opportunities were amazing.
It is so easy to forget what we have around us, I always forget how beautiful our country is, I have been lucky enough to explore different areas of England and they can be just as pretty as going abroad and having a hot relaxing holiday. But you can have just as much fun with attractions and places that are on our doorstep.
