Enjoy a steam journey through the gentle, rolling Quantock Hills, with views of distant Exmoor, passing unspoilt villages and farms nestling in leafy lanes, cliffs and coasts of the Bristol Channel offering stunning vistas of distant South Wales, confident Church Towers, the imposing Dunster Castle and the seaside charm of traditional Minehead.

Indulge in some relaxation time at the Thermae Bath Spa, Britain’s only natural thermal spa which combines state-of-art with traditional facilities. Marvel at the incredible buildings in the city, one of the reasons why it has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Sie.
