English Tourism Week 18th - 27th March 2022

During English Tourism Week we take a look around at the great attractions and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty we have on our doorstep and realise how fortunate we are.

Again, this year, as we look forward to receiving visitors from across the country, we can be justly proud to suggest the many ways in which they can keep themselves, their families and even their dogs amused.
Our rich, historical local heritage is laid out for visitors at the marvellous Museum of Somerset which also runs a range of activities for children throughout the year. 

Our open spaces and walks that lead to the pretty countryside that surrounds the town are always popular and, at the Taunton Visitor Centre, we stock a wide range of maps and walking books as well as free leaflets for anyone to be able to make the most of the area.

The proximity of Vivary Park to the town centre makes it an ideal spot for a picnic and getting away from the hustle and bustle, it has safe play areas for children and the Coffee Station to provide refreshments. The Vivary Golf and Adventure Centre offers a fun-filled range of activities for all the family, from walking between the treetops to enjoying a more sedate round of mini-golf. 

This year we are delighted to welcome the spectacular Museum of the Moon which will be installed in the newly designated Taunton Minster (Church of St Mary Magdalene) and we can also look forward to the summer when a new motor museum is anticipated to open in the town centre.
At the Taunton Visitor Centre we offer a warm welcome to locals and visitors alike. We are a box office for many of the concerts and events taking place locally and we are always happy to give suggestions for places to go and things to see. Talking of things to see, we also sell vouchers for hot air balloon flights with Fly Away Ballooning which will give you the most fanstastic experience of seeing our beautiful county from the air. 

So, for local information and a super range of local products and souvenirs remember we are here to help.
