Somerset Life|October 2019
Trying to organise an itinerary on a short break to Somerset’s bustling county town is something of a tall order. There is so much to do and see in Taunton – day or night, whatever time of year and whatever the weather. So we’ve done the work for you and devised a tailormade weekend away which we think has something for everyone. Knowing Taunton, though, there is a good chance you may stumble on an undiscovered gem of a place that even we don’t know about.
Why not take the afternoon off and arrive in Taunton early? After all there are plenty of things to pack in this weekend. Our choice would be to make a beeline for the centre of town and book in at the romantic Castle Hotel with its magnificent wisteria-clad façade (the-castle-hotel.com). Check your bags in and relax for a while with afternoon tea in the peaceful 12th-century rose garden before heading off to explore the town.
