Explore the Mystical and Historic Landscapes of Somerset

Somerset, a land steeped in myth and magic, is a historical tapestry where the eerie mists often blur the lines between fact and fiction. This region has been the backdrop for legendary kings such as Arthur and Alfred the Great. It served as the cradle of Christianity in Britain, a stronghold during the tumultuous times of Alfred the Great, and witnessed fierce battles during the Civil War.
Famed for its rich tradition in cider making and drinking, Somerset is home to numerous cider farms, each offering their unique brew. This deep-rooted cider heritage even inspired the formation of the beloved folk band, The Wurzels.

Greenbank Swimming Pool, in the heart of Street, set in the beautiful Somerset countryside, located a stone’s throw from Clarks Village Shopping Centre. The fabulous 100 feet (30 metres) outdoor pool is heated to 30C in the main pool and 32C in the children’s pool, so you can swim comfortably even when the sun is hiding behind the clouds.
