Glastonbury Abbey

Generally speaking people come to the Abbey for three reasons.

 

First, they want to see a living Christian sanctuary that may have been the site of the oldest church, and was certainly once the   greatest Abbey, in the country. Second, they come because they want to see the possible burial place of   King Arthur, but the third reason people come to the Abbey grounds is simply for peace and   quiet. The relative seclusion of the 36 acres provides the perfect atmosphere for people who want to forget their hectic daily   lives, and take it easy.

Puxton Park

Set in the beautiful Somerset countryside the 50 acre family adventure park is one of the largest visitor attractions in the South West providing fun and variety with something to offer everyone.
From a state of the art giant indoor play barn to the delightful Pets' Village, adults and children alike can experience the joys of getting up close and personal with the many animals we home. Hairy highland beasties, pot bellied pigs, pygmy goats, rabbits and guinea pigs - you decide. Or if you prefer something a little more up close and personal, drop into our dairy where you can see our cows being milked each day. A visit to the Falconry Centre is another highlight. Home to owls, falcons and hawks this is a unique opportunity to see birds of prey as never before with our daily displays.

 

Many activities for families with children and toddlers alike.  Very nice farm shop and restaurant for seniors and grounds for picnics and walks.

Westhay Moor Nature Reserve

Explore a mosaic of wildlife habitat at Westhay Moor

Westhay Moor nature reserve, part of the Avalon marshes,  is set within Somerset’s historic Levels and Moors,  and  provides a unique insight into 6,000 years of shifting landscapes. The mosaic of habitats, home to a vast array of wildlife is great for exploring - no matter what time of year. 

Many special species live at Westhay Moor all year round, including the Bittern, Otter and Bearded Tits.

Late Autumn and through the Winter is a great time to catch a glimpse of an Otter family travelling the waterways that criss-cross the marshes.

In the Summer keep your eyes peeled for the metallic Dragonflies  and Damselflies glistening  in the reeds, and in the Spring listen out for the booming Bittern.
