Taunton Visitor Centre

Welcome to Taunton, the historic county town of Somerset.

Now based in the western wing of the landmark Market House, the Taunton Visitor Centre is the place to go to make the most of your time in Taunton. The county town has plenty to offer from individual boutiques to historic architecture, modern dining to unspoilt views across the Blackdown Hills and the Quantock Hills (both AONBs). Taunton offers a wide mix of activities, attractions and events - we can’t wait to help you plan the perfect trip!
