South West England

Major Cities and Regions

Bristol is the largest city in the southwest of England, straddling the River Avon with a prosperous maritime history and an important center of culture. There are plenty of historical areas to visit including the suspension bridge, designed by Brunel; many Victorian and Georgian-era buildings; Queen Square, which is the second largest perfect square in Europe, and the former city-center port, the Harbourside, which is now a cultural hub. The city is famous for its music and film industries.

Explore quintessentially English villages of honey-coloured stone; take in splendid, lively market towns, and visit some of the country`s greatest palaces, castles and country houses in The Cotswolds, a collection of small, rural villages with acclaimed reserves and some of the most breathtaking landscapes available in England. Walk along historic trails, make a splash in the lake-land area (with its own inland beach) and sample the famous meats, cheeses, and drinks of the quaint gastro-pubs that dot the countryside.

Gloucester, the county town of Gloucestershire, is situated on the River Severn, east of the Cotswolds and southwest of the Forest of Dean. Gloucester Cathedral, built on the site of a 7th-century abbey, is the burial site of King Edward II. Other points of interest include Medieval and Tudor-era buildings, including the only example of a Medieval courtyard inn with galleries left standing in Britain. The Docks district consists of caf├ęs, restaurants and bars inside converted Victorian warehouses.

Founded by Romans around the only naturally-occurring hot springs in the United Kingdom, Bath is one of the most beautiful cities in the country, and has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Much of the architecture of Bath dates from the 18th century, and the city is famous for its many fine examples of Georgian architecture, most notably the Royal Crescent. Nowadays it is a fashionable spa resort.

WHY SOUTH WEST ENGLAND?

South West England is a relatively rural region of England, consisting of the counties of Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Somerset, Dorset, Devon, Cornwall, and the city-county of Bristol. It is filled with exciting sights such as Stonehenge, the world-famous prehistoric stone circle which attracts 1.5 million visitors a year to rural Wiltshire; the Roman-era hot springs of Bath; the coasts of Dorset and east Devon, which showcase 185 million years of geological history in the collective form of beautiful beaches and rock formations; and the now-deserted tin mines that dot the coasts of west Devon and south Cornwall. All four of the aforementioned popular tourist attractions are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The largest city in the region, Bristol, is known for the Clifton Suspension Bridge, which takes passengers on a scenic ride 300 feet over the Avon Gorge. Gloucester, on the River Severn, is home to Gloucester Cathedral, the burial site of King Edward II. Geographic diversity abounds in the South West, ranging from the rolling hills of The Cotswolds to the rocky coasts of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, located off Cornwall`s southwestern tip.
