Places to eat & drink in Taunton.

Taunton is the bustling county town of Somerset. It's convenient and safe has a great combination of pedestrian friendly shops, restaurants and leisure facilities, including much for those interested in architecture, archaeology and heritage. It even has its own castle with a museum and hotel based in it.

It's a traditional market town with Tudor buildings dotted here and there and two grand churches which tower above the town. It is full of appeal and engaging hospitality and makes a great day out for visitors and locals alike, with a park and ride system on the Taunton Gateway site near Junction 25 of the M5.

There is a good theatre in the Brewhouse which attracts national and local artists and an annual carnival snakes its way around the town. For horticulturists there is the Taunton flower show and it is one of the champions of the RHS National Britain in Bloom. For cricket fans there is the county ground which is home to Somerset County Cricket club, overlooked by the massive tower of St. James Church, and for race goers - the Taunton Racecourse, which is about two miles away.... there is something for everyone here.
