Upper High Street is just a short walk to the centre of Taunton and Vivary Park, a delightful Victorian Park with bowling club, tennis court, golf course and traditional Victorian band stand.

Taunton provides a wide range of shopping facilities and Somerset County Cricket Ground. The town also offers a good selection of both state and independent schools including Castle School, Taunton School, King s, Richard
