Somerset Tube Map - the alternative commute

The famous Tube Map of the London Underground is more than a source of information – it’s a design icon and a comfort for those visiting the capital. Millions of people rely on it for getting from A to B on a daily basis.

So why not use the same concept elsewhere?

Research has shown that 20,000 people a year migrate to Somerset to start a better life in the countryside or one of the county’s many market towns. Half of those people come from London and the South East.

Now the Somerset Heritage Service, part of the county council, has devised a tube map for the main attractions in Somerset.

The map encompasses museums, castles and stately homes, archaeological sites and monuments and even local steam railways.

Montacute House, the site of the Battle of Sedgemoor, Glastonbury Tor, the Wellington Museum and the West Somerset railway are all laid out along suggested tourist trails throughout the county.

“The new map will make it easy for people moving to Somerset to plan weekends, long walks or days out with the kids,” says Rupert Cox of Somerset 3D.

“Somerset has an extremely rich cultural heritage and there are hundreds of things to see and do in the county, making it a perfect destination for holidays and for those looking to escape the rat race and move away from London.”
