For shopping, you must check out the chic independents on Bath Place and St James Street – you’re sure to find that perfect memento to take home. History? From prehistoric to present day, piece together a timeline of 400 million years at the Museum of Somerset – located in a 12th-century castle! For plant lovers, 50 acres of botanical paradise awaits at Hestercombe Gardens, a 15-minute drive from our restaurant. For views from scenic landscapes and woodlands, you’ll be spoilt for choice with amazing walks and cycle rides around Taunton.
