Welcome to the county town of Somerset. Taunton is a thriving, forward-looking town where modern life sits alongside relics of its dramatic past dating back to Saxon times.

The town is the retail capital of the county with all the top names in shopping, eating and drinking, as well as a wonderful mix of specialist and independent retailers. For evening entertainment the Brewhouse Theatre offers something for all tastes.

Taunton has had a turbulent past most notably in 1685 when the Monmouth Rebellion was brutally quelled by Judge Jeffrey's Bloody Assize in the Great Hall of Taunton Castle. The Taunton Heritage Trail is a self guided tour through this rich history and heritage.

The town has also won the Britain in Bloom award for large/small city in 2008 - Vivary Park shows off this splendour. Taunton is also home to Somerset County Cricket Club who hosted the Group stages of the 2011 Women's Twenty:20 World Cup and was runner up in all 3 major cricket competitions in 2011.
