Plan your journey from Taunton Train StationA traditional county town, Taunton has a number of notable attractions.
One of its main draws is the stunning Taunton Castle, which dates back to the Anglo-Saxon period in the 12th century. Built by Henry de Blois, Bishop of Winchester, the castle fell to ruins over the years, but has now been converted into the Museum of Somerset. Learn about the county’s history, from prehistoric times to the present day, from the museum's exhibitions.
The St Mary Magdalene church is well worth a visit, and was also built by Henry de Blois. Completed in 1508, the unique early Tudor, gothic style is particularly noteworthy. For something entirely different, visit the Taunton Racecourse, where you may be lucky enough to catch a race.

Weston-super-Mare is a seaside resort town located 40 minutes from Taunton on the M5. Here the views of the sweeping Bristol Channel are never disappointing. Weston’s Grand Pier is especially worth visiting. It's situated on a golden beach where the world’s second highest tide comes in. The Playhouse Theatre puts on a wide variety of shows across the year and there’s a lovely shopping district in the town too. Visit the SeaQuarium to learn all about local marine life.
Wells may be England’s smallest city, but it’s got just as much to offer as any big town. Drive 55 minutes from Taunton, on Routes A361 and A39, to reach this historical town that's sheltered by the Mendip Hills. Vicars’ Close is the oldest complete medieval street in Europe and Wells Cathedral is one of the best examples of early English architecture, built between the 12th and 14th centuries. For more stunning architecture, visit the Bishop’s Palace to see the 13th century vaulted Undercroft as well as the gardens surrounded by a moat.
Bath, one of England’s top tourist destinations, is just a 90-minute drive on the M5. This spa town is renowned for its Georgian architecture and preserved Roman bathhouses which date back 2,000 years. The natural hot springs are still in use today.
