Try the original Cheddar Cheese!
Visit the beautiful Wells Cathedral
FREE bar 6pm – 10pm each evening
Steeped with Victorian history and dominated by a fabulous beach, Weston-Super-Mare is a gateway to all the attractions that Somerset has to offer, making our long weekend in the south-west perfect for a UK summer break.
Check-in at your hotel. When evening comes, we can enjoy a welcome drink with other Solos guests before dinner in the hotel restaurant.
After breakfast on Saturday morning, we will board our coach and head to Cheddar Village for a full day guided tour. Cheddar is a parish in Somerset known as the origin of Cheddar Cheese, which has been produced here since the 12th century and to this day is still stored in the Cheddar Caves to mature. Afterwards we will have some free time to explore Cheddar on our own and visit the famous Cheddar Gorge & Caves.
After breakfast we head to Bath where we will have all day to explore this beautiful city at your leisure. During our morning guided walking tour we will see that Bath was built for pleasure and relaxation, and has been a well-being destination since Roman times. The waters are still a big draw, both at the ancient Roman Baths and the thoroughly modern Thermae Bath Spa, which houses the only natural thermal hot springs in Britain.
On Monday after checking out, you may like to explore the local area before heading home.

There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £5. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% of the metered fare.
The dress code for during the day is casual. In the evenings the dress code is smart with gentlemen requested to wear a shirt and tie. Comfortable shoes for walking and sightseeing are recommended.
Below is a list of the current drinks currently included in the hotel promotion.

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
