Discover historic sites and properties on a self-guided tour of Taunton.
There are some beautiful, original heritage sites in Taunton, many of which are marked on the Taunton Heritage Trail. By using the leaflet you can visit the historic sites and properties on a self-guided tour.
The circular tour starts at the historic Market House, before guiding you to the magnificent Museum of Somerset and St Mary Magdalene Church amongst other locales. The stunning Vivary Park and the atmospheric Almhouses require a slight detour off the circular route but they are certainly well worth it!
