Yeovil has been a traditional market town for centuries. Nowadays its bustling streets are lined with a mix of conventional high street stores and independent retailers, selling everything from crafts and clothes to pottery and food, much of it with a distinctive West Country appeal.
Alongside the established shops are busy and colourful street markets two days a week and a farmers market once a month.
The Quedam shopping centre is attractively designed to reflect a village street and provide a calm, friendly and relaxed environment for the serious shopper.
Yeovil boasts two theatres featuring excellent regular productions and an arts centre with a high quality exhibition programme. Call at Yeovil tourist information centre for current details.
Other attractions include swimming pools, children's adventure playgrounds, a golf club, ski centre, multi-screen cinema and ten-pin bowling.
At the foot of the town is the wooded parkland of Yeovil Country Park, where wonderful peaceful walks can be enjoyed.
A few miles away are the unusual Barwick park follies. A follies leaflet, available from the tourist information centre, gives an insight into these fascinating buildings.
