Visitor Centre Services

The Taunton Visitor Centre holds information on the many wide and varied things there are to do within Taunton Deane and the surrounding areas. Now a part of the bustling Town Centre mix, we welcome over 100,000 visitors and local residents through our doors each year.

Our Box Office offers tickets for most of the local and regional events taking place, including the hugely popular Bath and West Show, Yeoviliton Air Day and Taunton Flower Show. We are also a box office for The Brewhouse Theatre and Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre in Taunton and the Playhouse Theatre in Weston-super-Mare. We also provide advance tickets for the Eden Project and West Somerset Railway at cheaper than gate prices.
