Dyrham Park
nr Chippenham SN14 8ER. Tel 01179 372501. Fax 01179 372501. Website

Dyrham was built between 1691 and 1702 for William Blathwayt, William III’s Secretary at War and Secretary of State. The rooms have changed little since they were furnished by Blathwayt and their contents are recorded in his housekeeper’s inventory. There are many fine textiles and paintings, as well as items of blue-and-white delftware, reflecting the contemporary taste for Dutch fashions. Restored Victorian domestic rooms open (and for extended period, see below), including kitchen, bells passage, bakehouse, larders, tenants’ hall and Delft-tiled dairy.

Waterloo Road, Radstock, BA3 3ER. Tel 01761 437722. Website
Open February to November, 2pm-5pm Tuesday to Friday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays, and 11am-5pm Saturdays.

This fascinating and enjoyable museum contains a unique collection of local artefacts, photographs, documents and books relating to the North Somerset Coalfield. These include a reconstructed coalface, miner's kitchen, 1930s Co-op shop, Victorian schoolroom, Chapel china, a town-centre and railway model and blacksmith's and carpenter's workshops.

Westonbirt Arboretum
near Tetbury, Gloucestershire. Tel 01666 880 220. Website

The Arboretum is a wonderful world of trees and shrubs.
There are 18,000 of them from all over the world, producing 600 acres of beautifully landscaped countryside. This makes Westonbirt one of the finest tree collections in the world today. However it is the combination of wild flowers, fungi, birds and animals as well as the trees themselves that make Westonbirt such a special place to so many people. This rich diversity of plant and animal life makes Westonbirt truly a place to visit at every season of the year.
