What to do in Street

Long the home of Clarks Shoes, one of the world’s most iconic footwear brands, the village of Street feels more like a town thanks to its size and wealth of shopping and dining options. In fact, Street’s list of credentials is longer than most places of its kind: other jewels in its crown include the prestigious Millfield school and the dinosaur skeletons unearthed in a nearby quarry.

Located on a Roman road - hence the name Street, derived from the Latin word for road, strata - Street’s signature Clarks Village shopping centre draws millions of shoppers from far and wide looking for premium brands and bargain prices. The outlet village was the first purpose-built of its kind in the UK and hosts brands offering everything from fashion and footwear to beauty, homeware and children’s toys.

Clarks Village is conveniently located right in the heart of Street, so it’s just a few steps from the village’s high street. Like the outlet village, Street’s centre is packed with shops from the national staple to the independent. At the far eastern end of the high street you’ll find Greenbank Pool, an outdoor swimming location that’s famous amongst locals and a family must-visit during the summer. After a hard day of shopping or swimming, head to one of the many eateries Street has to offer: options include Italian, Indian, Thai and Chinese alongside traditional British pub favourites and American-style fast food.

If you still have an appetite for more local adventure, take to the Somerset Levels - with access points around Street in almost every direction - for endless walks, cycle rides and opportunities to explore more quintessentially Somerset scenes.
