Leaving Bristol behind, it’s time to explore the city of Wells. It may not seem big enough to be a city, but Wells has held city status since medieval times due to the presence of Wells Cathedral. Take a wander around England’s smallest city and take in the beautiful cathedral that has been used as a filming location in many films, including The Huntsman: A Winter’s Tale and the TV show Wolf Hall. Next, it’s Glastonbury, a stop you won’t want to miss because there’s so much to do here. You can choose to hike up to Glastonbury Tor for an incredible view of the countryside. Take a peaceful stroll around the Chalice Well, which has links to King Arthur and the waters of Avalon. Explore the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey. Or simply wander the streets and try not to spend all your money. Time to quench your thirst at Burrow Hill Cider Farm, a stunning apple orchard that sits on 180 acres in beautiful Somerset. They’ve been pressing cider for over 200 years, so it’s no surprised they were granted the UK’s first ever full cider-distilling license back in 1989. Enjoy a tasting in the shop or even simply wander the lovely orchard grounds. The last stop of the day is a visit to the village of Cheddar. We know what you’re thinking: is the whole place made of cheese? If only. However, you should definitely get yourself some cheese while in town. This is a beautiful little spot and we know you’ll have a great time exploring it. Not to mention, we take a scenic drive through the jaw-dropping Cheddar Gorge before we head back to Bristol.
