I have now lived in Taunton for four years now and I moved here from Minehead as it is ideally located next to the M5. Taunton is famous for the following one of the Wurzels lives here, Somerset Cricket club, many array of ciders, The Castle Hotel for instance.

Taunton is the county town of Somerset and not a bad place, but also not really somewhere to jump up and down about and I consider myself qualified to say this as I spent most of my life living in Somerset. It was the type of town we used to visit for a better selection of shops or to go to a decent cinema complex with bowling (just on the outskirts). It has some decent private schools and the Castle Hotel is also somewhere woth a visit. This is where Gary Rhodes made his debut. Taunton is however home of Somerset cricket and so this attracts many visitors, as does the cattle market held once a week which attracts local farmers from all over the county and beyond. ..

**Introduction** When I was coming up to 500 reviews I had a think about what review I would do to mark my 500 milestone of reviews. I then decided to review my home town of Taunton which I have lived in apart from six years of my life when I lived in Yeovil between the ages of 2 and 8. When had decided I was reviewing Taunton I wanted to do something a little different to the 5 reviews already on here for Taunton. Obviously there will be some things which will obviously be similar when talking about the town but anyway here is my review of Taunton. **County Town** Taunton is the County Town of Somerset which means it is the base of the ...

After reading a previous review I think I need to write something myself about Taunton I was born there and lived in Taunton until about 8 years ago when I moved down to Plymouth - apart from 2 years spent studying in Coventry. Taunton is the county town of Somerset and it is very much linked to its market and farming traditions as it's totally surrounded by farmland. Nighlife is pretty much non-existant apart from many bars and a nighclub situated across the road from the railway station. It has 1 main road strewn with shops - but is split into sections (by road names - from station road to north street, to east street to east ... Read the complete review

one of my friends lives in taunton now and i've been down to visit her a couple of times. it's situated well, just off the m5 which is very useful for travelling back and forth. the town itself is quite pretty, but a little outdated. the nightlife is mediocre at best, it has to be said, with a wetherspoons and a lloyds bar making up most of the entertainment. the housing prices are fairly steady, and there is a variety of places to eat and drink, and the high street has a good selection of shops. with a lick of paint and a few art sculptures taunton could come out of the 80s and really give bristol and places a run for their money.
