Taunton in Somerset is a busy market town with lots to see and do. The Museum of Somerset - set within the 12th century Taunton Castle - tells a fascinating story of the county's journey from pre-historic times to the present day. It houses historical objects, interactive games, film projections and stories from the local people (past and present).
There is a large antique market as well as a weekly farmers market.
A great way of exploring the town is by the self-guided Taunton Heritage trail which you can take at your own pace and will tell you lots of interesting facts about the town itself.
Outside the town there are many activities to have a go at, including Alpaca trekking!
