Somerset Tourism

Somerset has some of the best countryside and coast in Britain, so it's no wonder that it is a popular holiday destination. In fact, the Somerset tourism industry was worth £750million in 2007, according to county council figures.

Entrepreneurs migrating to Somerset often first experience the county on holiday and enjoy it so much that they then return to live and set up business.

The majority of the tourism sector consists of hundreds of small businesses, operating Bed and Breakfast accommodation, guest houses and hotels and tourism attractions.

Exmoor is a key destination attraction with the outstanding landscape that is linked to the Somerset Levels by the Quantock Hills.

Looking north, visitors become enchanted with the Mendip Hills – and what is beneath them with caving and potholing being top activities for tourists and locals alike.

Above ground, visitors can walk the hills and then visit the market towns of Wells and Glastonbury – each attracting over 300,000 visitors per year.

Relocate your business and live in Somerset and you enjoy the countryside and coast every day.
