Watchet

Watchet

Watchet, can be found hugging the coast between the Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park, a site of specific scientific interest, a port of more than a 1000 years!
 
Watchet – A town of contrasts!
With a Harbour and Marina you would be excused for thinking that Watchet was a fishing town, but Scratch the surface and you’ll discover a Port with an industrial heritage to rival most large Towns!  With the West Somerset Railway running through the town making it an ideal place to visit on your train journey. Turn your back to the sea and discover a rural scene thousands of years in the making with geological features formed in the Jurassic Period.  Situated on the England Coast Path make Watchet your base to walk south to Minehead or north to Brean. Or explore the Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park.

Choose to visit during peak season and  find the town filled with hundreds of people enjoying live music, entertainment, having fun or watching a local spectacle. Choose to visit off peak and enjoy the peace and quiet of a small town. Whatever brings you into Watchet be sure to visit local independent shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants for that uniquely Watchet experience.

Although a small town Watchet boasts a wealth of architecturally interesting buildings. Some quaint and pretty, some industrial and some extremely modern! A wealth of places to visit, museums, galleries, artists workshops and local businesses. Places to sit and enjoy the views or places to sit and enjoy the local ales.

Watchet certainly is a place for both the young and old, from weeks of Summertime fun to Shanty nights and Tea Dances, Maritime Mayhem, Markets, Live Music and Live entertainment. Check out the full events calendar on offer.

Find holiday accommodation with Georgian overtones or modern pods! B&B or self catering cottages.
