A county of romance and legend, home to Romans and dandies, Somerset is one of England’s largest counties but has a relatively low population. The rolling countryside is the perfect escape from city living, while centres like Bath and Bristol are hives of creativity and technology from aerospace and web-entrepreneurs to Banksy and Wallace and Grommet. You’ll also find a thriving food culture and huge events. Jane Austen, Glastonbury Festival (the world’s largest greenfield music festival), hot springs, cold cider, there is so much to explore.
Population – 530,117 (2011 You.Gov census)
Area – 1,610² miles

Somerset is most certainly a county of two halves. While it is most certainly a rural idyl, home to farming, cheese making and of course cider (perhaps its most loved export), Somerset has always been a fashionable, forward thinking county. The likes of Jane Austen and the celebrated dandy Beau Nash lived and partied in Bath. Bath’s waters are long believed to have healing and restorative powers, the Roman’s helped layout much of the county and Uranus was discovered in Bath.
Perhaps the county’s most enduring myths surround its associations with King Arthur and Camelot. For centuries it has been believed that King Arthur and Merlin lived in the Somerset, that Camelot, Avalon were here and that Somerset is also the final resting place of the Holy Grail.
Today Somerset is home to high tech industries and has a long association with aeronautics. Concord was built here and much of the RAF’s fleet comes from the area. The county has fast rail links to London as well being the gateway to the South West plus offering access to South Wales.
For such a large county, Somerset has a relatively small number of towns, but you will find wide open spaces, small, pretty villages, warm pubs and cold scrumpy on a summer’s day. As for the arguments between Devon and Cornwall over who serves the best cream teas? Somerset folk will tell you they’re both wrong!
