Overall Guide : It's like being back home in New Zealand, walking around. Easy going. Polite drivers and shop assistants. From exchange rates , obviously twice as dear as home. But that's the way it is worldly. I'm staying in North Petherton. But that... more doesn't stop me catching the bus, and with national express offering 30 % off of fares, it means a regular visit to shops and cafes whilst here. Thoroughly enjoyable place, Taunton
Not to be missed Castle lodge gardens , Somerset cricke museum , Thursday market

Overall Guide : I grew up in Taunton between 1954 and 1967. It was a more attractive town then, quieter with fewer boring modern buildings and with plenty of small shops where people knew your name and had time to chat. But nice... more as this was for residents I am sure tourists today will find it a much livelier place and a good base for touring the area.
Not to be missed Buncombe Hill , Vivary Park Bandstand , The Old Pig Market
