Celebrating Somerset as a Place to Live, Work and Play.


Those of us who live and work in Somerset know that our diverse region has a wealth of treasures from beautiful and historic cities, through rich farming traditions, to a business community which ranges from ground-breaking engineering and aeronautics to financial services. And let’s not forget the fantastic food and drink for which this area is perhaps most renowned…

Passion for Somerset, the not for profit Community Interest Company which champions this most beautiful and bountiful of British counties has the single aim of celebrating Somerset and all it has to offer, and shouting this from the treetops; you can help make sure Somerset isn’t a well-kept secret, but known to be open for business and welcoming visitors every day of the year.

Passion for Somerset’s work centres around ‘Somerset Day’ held on May 11th every year, in honour of King Alfred the Great’s routing of the Vikings from his stronghold in the Somerset marshes in May 878.
