Somerset Levels and Moors

United Kingdom
By Dmitry Petrounin Dmitry Petrounin Section editor Profile

Discover Somerset Levels and Moors

Somerset's coastal plains and ancient countryside are deeply anchored in legend. It is here that you'll find the Glastonbury Tor, the mount on which stands St Michael's Tower, a religious site dating back thousands of years. King Arthur is buried at Glastonbury Abbey, while the Mesolithic Cheddar Man - Britain's oldest complete human skeleton - was found in nearby Gough's Cave. That being said, the vistas over the Somerset Levels, cut across by the Polden Hills, are reason enough to visit the region.
