Taunton Town Page

We are delighted to welcome you to Taunton – the gateway to the South West with an enthralling history. Travellers throughout the centuries have stopped and discovered this county town which reflects the rich countryside around it and the trades of the people within.

Arts, literature, sport, entertainment, nature, shopping and world-class food are just some of the things that have inspired visitors to settle here in Somerset, so named in Anglo-Saxon times as the land of the summer people. You can follow in their footsteps and experience Taunton’s warm character and traditional hospitality.

For more information, contact Taunton Visitor Centre on 01823 340470 or email tauntonvisitorcentre@tauntondeane.gov.uk
