Wellington has a long history first recorded in 899, then known as Weolingtun, which means "wealthy estate". A royal charter of 1215 gave Wellington its status as a town, and during the medieval period it grew as a centre for trade on the road from Bristol to Exeter. Wellington gave its name to the first Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley and nearby Wellington Hill boasts a large, spotlit obelisk to his honour, the Wellington Monument. In a County of wide open spaces, steeped in culture and history, there are just so many things to do in Somerset you will find yourself spoilt for choice. Somerset is perhaps best known for its attractions, days out, carnivals and festivals such as the world famous event at Glastonbury. The County is rich in wildlife and ranks among the UK’s top places.
