COVID-19 UPDATE June 2020

We advise you to check directly with places you wish to visit in advance as information is being updated and changing regularly. Some remain closed, others have changed opening times and some now have to be booked in advance before arrival. 

We know that you love South Somerset as much as we do. We kindly ask for your help to make sure that we all do our bit to respect the guidelines in place and protect all that is glorious now and for the future. 

Thank you. 


South Somerset has lots of exciting places to see and things to do, from peaceful family walks to steam railway rides.  To help you find things that would interest you, we have a few ideas to make it easier for you.

In 2020, we have produced a handy map covering the South Somerset, which can be downloaded.

In previous years we have compiled brochures on different themes which can be downloaded or paper copies can be picked up at the local Tourist Information Centres across South Somerset and some national Information Centres.

If you are not sure about where to go we or what to do we have a number of different itineraries to follow. Please check that the attractions are open before making a special journey.
