From the genteel Georgian terraces of Bath to the wilderness expanses of Exmoor, the fully updated The Rough Guide to Bath, Bristol & Somerset provides an all-round account of this richly rewarding region, with comprehensive details of what to see, what to do and where to sleep, eat and drink. Useful context and background information accompany all the practicalities, interspersed with vivid, full-colour photos and some of the clearest maps to be found in any guidebook.
Rough Guides’ local experts cover high culture and street art, from the architectural glory of Wells Cathedral to Bristol’s exuberant murals, as well as all the options for getting active, including cycling on the Somerset Levels and hiking in the Quantock Hills. Alongside information on the best local festivals, there are full reviews of the worthiest restaurants and the most characterful pubs. Beyond the borders of Somerset but within easy reach, The Rough Guide to Bath, Bristol & Somerset also takes in such hotspot destinations as Salisbury and Stonehenge, as well as the full-on family attraction of Longleat.
