Taunton Travel Guide

The town centre has recently been improved to provide a more relaxed atmosphere for shoppers and visitors. There is a good mix of specialist shops complemented by most of the major national multiples. Bath Place, The Old Market Shopping Centre, Riverside Place and The Courtyard are all popular shopping haunts. The Taunton Antiques Market held every Monday in Silver Street attracts over 130 Antique Dealers specialising in everything collectable.

Taunton has a lively social life, The Brewhouse Theatre and Arts Centre is the town’s premiere cultural venue for theatrical and musical events. For less cerebral entertainment Taunton has some 80 pubs many hosting a variety of musical and other events. Food and drink is taken seriously too, there are numerous restaurants in and around the town, many serving dishes from local produce. The restaurant at The Castle Hotel is internationally noted.

For the visitor Taunton is an ideal place from which to explore the surrounding countryside. To the north of the town are the Quantock Hills and the seaside resort of Minehead, to the west the wild landscape of Exmoor, and to the south the hidden villages of the Blackdown Hills.

Adjacent to the M5 Taunton has good transport links with the rest of the country; London can be reached by train in less than 3 hours. Bristol International Airport, with regular flights to domestic and European destinations is less than one hours drive away.
