Situated at the foot of the Brendon Hills at the gateway to Exmoor, 'Wivey' is a thriving local centre surrounded by attractive countryside that is never far away. It contains numerous shops, many still with their Victorian frontages, whilst the pubs stock ales from the town's two breweries. Follow the Historic Town Trail - unlock the town's history and discover why Wiveliscombe was directly involved in the London Blitz.

There's an impressive wealth of creativity to be discovered in the surrounding parishes, with artists, potters, sculptors and photographers taking part in the 10 Parishes Festival which takes place in and around Wiveliscombe. Local artist, Michael Fairfax recently unveiled a public art sculpture to be used as a tourist information point in the town's square representing local history and features.
