Save on Acommodation
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.
Things to see and do while staying here
If you or your loved one needs to spend time at the Musgrove Park Hospital, there are many things in the surrounding area that you can do to make your stay more enjoyable.
The Taunton visitor centre is located in the landmark Market House on Paul Street and is open Monday through Saturday to help you plan your stay. While you wander along the picturesque streets of Taunton, you will find the sandstone tower of St Mary Magdalene’s church reaching 163 ft into the sky. Stroll about the beautifully tended to gardens of Vivary Park, home of the annual Taunton Flower Show, and relax among the tree lined paths and fountains. After a day of exploring, head out for a drink at one of the local pubs, and try one of the many local ciders produced nearby; or better yet, go tour one of them!
Taunton has many layers of mystery and intrigue. Through exploration and a self guided tours can tourists fully appreciate all the town has to offer. It was here, in 1685 when the Duke of Monmouth crowned himself king of England and the town castle was the scene of the Bloody Assizes that followed the Battle of Sedgemoor.
Also, Vivary Park derives its name from 70 acres of land being formerly used as a vivarium – two massive fishponds, kept to breed fish served at prestigious banquets hosted by the bishops of Winchester, since at least 1207.
If in town for business, take a break from all those conferences and make time to watch a cricket match at the Somerset County country club or take a tour of the Musgrove Park Hospitalwhich was originally a US Army General Hospital during the Second World War.
One highlight not to be missed while in Tauton include spotting wildlife and birdwatching at the West Sedgemoor Nature Reserve. The Museum of Somerset is a top area attraction with many interactive displays and houses treasured items from across many areas. If you are interested in the history of the area, the Museum of Somerset is located within Taunton’s Norman castle, and has information on Somerset from prehistory to present day, including information on local geology, archeology, medieval and ethnography. If you are a theatre buff, go to one of the shows at The Brewhouse Theatre! It reopened in 2014 with better reviews than ever, with exciting shows regularly. For evening socialising the Brewhouse Theatre has something for all tastes.
