There’s nothing more appealing than a row of picture-perfect properties in some of Somerset’s most beautiful locations. Which street is your favourite in the county?

The Circus, Bath

The stunning row of Georgian townhouses on Bath’s The Circus is always worthy of a picture.

Vicars Close, Wells

Adjoining the spectacular Wells Cathedral, Vicars Close is the only complete medieval street left in England and current occupants still include all 12 men of the Vicars Choral, plus the organists and vergers.

High Street, Porlock

The High Street in the attractive fishing village of Porlock is bursting with character and a friendly welcome from residents.

Caledonia Place, Clifton

The late 18th century terrace of Georgian properties with pretty balconies in Clifton gives us major house envy!

High Street, Dunster

The medieval village of Dunster is just waiting to be explored. Marvel at the formidable Dunster Castle, gorgeous listed buildings and 17th century Yarn Market.

Royal Crescent, Bath

Arguably one of England’s most breathtaking examples of Georgian architecture, Bath’s Royal Crescent celebrates its 250 year anniversary in 2017.

Hammet Street, Taunton

With the spectacular Church of St Mary Magdalene positioned at the end of the street, you’re always guaranteed a great view while strolling down Hammet Street. Make your way down Taunton’s Fore Street as well to admire the striking medieval buildings.

High Street, Glastonbury

Glastonbury’s High Street is a pleasure to explore with its lively atmosphere and colourful shop frontages.

The Square, Axbridge

The medieval square in the centre of Axbridge, with its half-timbered buildings and charming independent shops and eateries is a wonderful spot to enjoy an afternoon.

Market Place, Castle Cary

The historic Market House on Market Place in Castle Cary looks like it belongs on the front of a postcard.

Church Street, Wedmore

It’s always a pleasant trip soaking in the Georgian architecture of Wedmore’s Church Street. Stop off at The George Inn for a drink and bite to eat – the Inn is believed to date back to the 15th century.

Catherine Hill, Frome

The steeped, cobbled street of Catherine Hill is full of independent boutiques and shops. It’s the perfect place to people watch while you enjoy a coffee and slice of cake!
