Find out more about your local areas – Discover and explore South Somerset

Discover15_COVER_lo-resMake sure you and your visitors enjoy the very best of our local area with the new 2015 Discover South Somerset guide.

This 44 page free guide includes sections on stunning countryside and wildlife, details of the many interesting and varied attractions and some of the great food and drink companies in the area. There is also a handy map at the back of the guide along with a calendar of local events and markets.

An additional 35,000 copies have been printed this year and will be distributed in the London and South East thanks to additional funding by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills as part of a fund to directly address the perception of ongoing flood issues on Somerset’s Level’s and Moors. This promotion of the area as a visitor destination will certainly help to increase trade for flood-affected businesses, encouraging new visitors to explore the stunning Levels and Moors.

The publication promotes what’s on offer within South Somerset to our visitors so they can see what a beautiful place we all live in. Our additional print run will help us to achieve that.

“For those that already live in South Somerset, the guide will have you wanting to visit places on your doorstep and invest your time in enjoying views, exploring, discovering, moving, relaxing and sampling the fine food and drink South Somerset produces”.

Discover South Somerset will be launched at the Literature Exchange at Haynes Motor Museum on 17th March – just one of the national events being held in English Tourism week this year.
