In the afternoon, we spend time in the lovely seaside town of Weston-super-Mare. Here you may like to walk along the Grand Pier and admire the stunning views before visiting the refurbished Weston Museum.

West Somerset Railway & Lynton & Lynmouth
This morning, we travel to Bishops Lydeard for a journey on the UK's longest heritage railway, the West Somerset Railway. After a visit to the Gauge Museum on Platform 1, we embark on a relaxing one-way journey through stunning countryside to Minehead (please note, steam haulage is not guaranteed and is dependent on departure times).

Day 4

Wells & Bath
We enjoy breakfast, before making our way to England's smallest city, beautiful Wells. Wells Cathedral is an absolute 'must-see', as is the stunning moated Bishop's Palace. Alternatively, you may wish to explore the medieval lanes and unspoilt buildings - or the Wednesday Farmers' Market.

In the afternoon, we visit elegant, honey-coloured Bath. Overflowing with museums, galleries, independent shops and eateries, there are, of course, the iconic sights to see too. Immerse yourself in a tour of the ancient Roman Baths or stroll along the Royal Crescent and majestic Circus. Enjoy the views from Poultney Bridge or visit the magnificent Assembly Rooms, where the Fashion Museum is housed. We then return to our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 5

After breakfast, we begin our journey home.
