The best english county (and apparently some shit place in america, but dont let that put you off from visiting somerset friends from abroad). Gave the world cider, the flushing toilet, cheddar cheese (the best kind of cheese bar none! If its from somerset and not some knock off stuff anyway) and the combine harvester! People struggle to understand the somerset people due to their thick accents except people from somerset and people from a small west indian island who, by coincidence, have the same accent). There is a large celtic influence in somerset from Wales and Cornwall hence why the area (or westcountry, including devon/cornwall) is a lot more like Wales than the rest of England. However, unfortunately, somerset is close to Bristol, who share our accent, tarring the reputation of our great county.
It is home of the world renowned glastonbury music festival which attracts hundreds of thousands of music lovers to some blokes field who produces milk for the rest of the year. Although this is not actually in Glastonbury, rather Worthy farm in Pilton, Glastonbury is a hippy town with a big hill and some stupid half castle that King Arthur supposedly lived in. Yawn.
