You can drive to Castle Cary from Bristol International Airport in less than 50 minutes. The city of Bristol itself is less than an hour away in a Castle Cary hire car. When in Bristol you can spend time at Blaise Castle, enjoying riverside walks in the forest and going back in time at the Blaise Castle House Museum. If you're after a little culture, the Bristol Hippodrome is an impressive theatre that regularly plays host to West End shows thanks to the fact that its stage is one of the largest in the UK outside of London.
Neighbouring Bath is a beautiful city with a mix of stunning architecture from the ancient Roman baths to the bright and imposing Georgian limestone buildings. Bath is a 50-minute drive from Castle Cary, and while there you can enjoy a Bath bun, a sweet doughy treat with dried fruit. Wells is known as England's smallest city with a population of just over 10,000. Getting to Wells with a Castle Cary rental car will take you less than half an hour, and you can enjoy the city's lovely cobbled streets and visit Wells Cathedral and the adjacent bishop's palace and gardens. Don't miss the cathedral clock with its display of two mechanical knights jousting when it chimes every 15 minutes.

London is two and a half-hours' drive with a Castle Cary car rental. The UK capital is one of the most international cities in the world, where you can enjoy culinary specialities from every corner of the globe. With a near-endless selection of free museums, entertainment and iconic sights, as well as parks and zoos, it would be impossible to pick out the best things to do in London, but a duck tour is certainly a unique way to take in the city. Climb aboard an amphibious bus for a view of London's streets before taking to the Thames for a river tour in the same vehicle!
