Watchet Visitor Centre, Harbour Road, Watchet, TA23 0AQ


Watchet is a lively coastal town with so much to do whatever the weather.


Watchet has been a harbour town for over 1000 years which means that it has plenty of stories of Vikings, Kings and Queens and even headless saints! As well as beautiful and quirky buildings.  It is sheltered by the Quantock Hills and with view across the channel to Wales and down the coast to Minehead and Exmoor, the landscape around the town is simply stunning.

Places to visit include The Mineral Line, Watchet Museum, Watchet Boat Musuem, the Watchet War Memorial, the West Somerset Railway, St. Decumens Church and Holy Well, and the marina.

Watchet Visitor Centre opened in 2016 alongside the newly refurbished Boat Museum, ideally situated next to  the West Somerset Railway Station, a main bus stop and the station car park.

As well as an extensive range of leaflets and information to take away, the Visitor Centre also houses information about the history and heritage of Watchet, interactive games to keep the children occupied, and extremely helpful staff!
