Market Towns in South Somerset

Castle Cary

BA7, Castle Cary

Castle Cary


The town has many attractive historic buildings including its 19th century Market House, its 18th century "Roundhouse" or lock-up' and the thatched George Hotel.  The main street, stretching down to the old Horse Pond, is full of individual high-quality shops, delicatessens, cafes and restaurants.  Tuesday is market day, when fish, bread and organic vegetables are sold on the cobbles in front of the Market House.
If you're walking, rambling, or simply looking for a quiet time in the countryside, Cary can provide it.  The Leland Trail , the Macmillan Way  and Monarch's Way  all pass near the town, as does the route to Glastonbury for many festival goers.  And the view from the top of Lodge Hill is magnificent.

The town is noted for its high quality shops - grocers, outfitters, ironmongers, books, antiques and local produce. There are several inns in the town, wonderful restaurants and tearooms making it perfect destination for a relaxing country break.
