Taunton Mini Guide

Taunton and its surrounding areas are served by both Bristol and Exeter International airports, actually being almost the same distance from both. Bristol in particular, handles flights of budget airlines flying in from many parts of Europe, making it an ideal way to arrive in the area. When it comes to where to stay, there are many types of accommodation available from large “country house” type hotels with gardens designed by Capability Brown to camping and caravanning with all things in between.
 
Why not explore this beautiful and historic area of the UK? The town of Taunton is situated just off the M5 motorway just over 40 miles south of both Bristol with it excellent shopping centre and rich maritime history and the ancient Roman city of Bath with its Pump Rooms and the scenic River Avon flowing through the centre.  To the south are the pretty villages of Somerset, Devon and Dorset.
