Travelling To Taunton & Taunton Car Parks
Taunton may lie in the heart of the West Country but that doesn’t mean it is remote, or difficult to get to. If coming by car why not use either of the two park and ride facilities, frequent shuttle services run from both to the town centre or alternatively you can locate one or our town centre car parks by clicking here

If you’re travelling by car you should allow roughly two and a quarter hours from London, two hours from Birmingham and an hour from Cardiff
For train travellers it’s around two hours from London Paddington (sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on the number of stops) and the same from Birmingham New Street. If you’re planning a cycling holiday you should book your bike on the train in advance to ensure it arrives with you. More details from National Rail Enquiries on 08457 484950
