Taunton is an up and coming county town or administrative centre in Somerset, England. After a Saxon history largely shaped with religion and military, it is reinventing itself. With award winning gardens and parks, equestrian trekking trails, love of cricket, abundance of historical landmarks, and large array of enticing restaurants, entertainment, and retail shopping venues, Taunton is a preferred destination for a getaway.
Visitors can stay in historic settings in the town centre such as on the premises of the majestic castle, which also hosts events and has a restaurant. Few well recognized brands located here such as Travelodge and Holiday Inn offer places to stay, though they do not hold a candle to the quaint atmosphere local Taunton b&b’s provide.
