Somerset

Whats happening in the region...

The seventh largest in the UK, Somerset is a rural county of rolling hills - the Blackdown Hills, Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park - and large flat expanses of land including the Somerset Levels. Home to the UK’s second smallest city, Wells, and the world renowned Glastonbury Festival, Somerset boasts thousands of listed buildings, conservation areas and ancient monuments as well as being famous for its cider! We work in partnership with communities across the country to support projects for the benefit of residents and visitors alike.
