Shopping in Taunton Deane

Taunton has traditionally been the shopping destination of choice for most of Somerset.

And the redevelopment of parts of the town centre, plus several new arrivals in the retail section over the last few years, has helped to enhance the whole shopping experience.

In addition to all the usual High Street names Taunton’s also home to a large range of independent shops, many of them long-established. You’ll find some grouped in historic Bath Place, off the High Street, and in the St James Street area.

And everything possible has been done to make a shopping trip to Taunton an enjoyable one.

The town is extremely well-served by car parks (see map for details), most encircling the town centre, so you never have to walk far from your car. And for quick visits there’s a certain amount of on-street metered parking available.

If you don’t want to bring your car into the town at all we have shoppers’ car parks served by non-stop shuttle buses on both the eastern and the western outskirts.

In fact Taunton Deane Council has been working for years on reducing traffic levels in the town centre to make it more shopper-friendly. High Street has been pedestrianised for years but more recently a new bridge over the River Tone has removed much of the through traffic from North Street, so creating a much more attractive environment for pedestrians.

Meanwhile a shortly to be completed inner relief road should soon start to bring similar benefits for Bridge Street and Station Road.

Taunton’s other great advantage is that, being sited on the banks of a river, there are no hills to struggle up wearily, laden with purchases. On the other hand should shopping fatigue set in then the town centre does boast an outstanding choice of restaurants, cafes and tea rooms to revive you.
