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 Quantock Hills (both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty). Taunton offers a wide mix of activities, attractions and events - we can’t wait to help you plan the perfect trip!   


Services offered

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 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 West Somerset Railway and the Eden Project.
