Our towns bustle with events and activities, quirky
characters, independent shops and street markets. Immerse yourself
in heritage and intrigue in every nook and cranny...
You'll find a warm welcome in our towns from friendly butchers
and bakers, florists, ironmongers, cobblers and newsagents. Off the
main street, you can track down the unconventional and antiquated:
specialist hobbies like postcard and stamp-collecting or
second-hand books and model-making.
Somerset is strong on renew, re-use and recycle. See what
treasures you can unearth and put back into use. Some of our local
post offices are in very pretty buildings. Pop to Castle Cary, Martock or Wincanton to find out.
