    To Taunton by train—travel tips

    Taunton is a small town in Somerset, England that boasts a long history that includes the 10th-century monarchy. You'll find several reasons to travel to the town that includes taking a trip through the history of Taunton with Roman mosaics and coins. The Museum of Somerset is a great first stop, which goes as far back as the 12th century, although there have been numerous alterations done to it since then. Vivary Park is another popular attraction among tourists. The Sherford Stream threads the park and houses several fish, while the park hosts various activities that include a miniature golf course, a model railway, several tennis courts, and playgrounds for the little ones. If you're interested in the military history of the town, make your way to Somerset Military Museum in the Great Hall at Taunton Castle. As a sports fan, between April and September, you can head to Somerset County Cricket Club to watch one of the top-class cricket teams in the county do battle with several other teams in the area. Brewhouse Theatre is Taunton's main performing arts venue. The theatre opened in 1977 and, despite a brief closing in 2013, provides the town with an array of programs that include ballet, jazz, contemporary dancing, touring bands, and tribute acts. If you make your way to the range just outside of Taunton, you'll find a glorious estate named Hestercombe Gardens, which dates back to the 16th century and are a testament to nearly 300 years of design with a Georgian landscape garden, as well as many others designed by Gertrude Jekyll and Edwin Lutyens.
