Shopping in Taunton Deane

As a shopping destination, Taunton offers a wide range of retail options.

In addition to all the usual High Street names Taunton is also home to a large number of independent shops, many of them long-established. You’ll find some grouped in historic Bath Place, off the High Street, and in the St James' Street area.

The redevelopment of parts of the town centre has helped to enhance the whole shopping experience.

The town is extremely well-served by car parks (see map for details), most encircling the town centre, so you never have to walk far from your car. And for quick visits there is a on-street metered parking available.

If you do not wish to bring your car into the town there is a Park and Ride service which operates every weekday from two sites on the eastern and the western outskirts (Gateway and Silk Mills).

The local council has been working for years on reducing traffic levels in the town centre so as to make it more shopper-friendly. The High Street has been pedestrianised for years but more recently a new bridge over the River Tone has removed much of the through traffic from North Street, so creating a much more attractive environment for pedestrians.

A recently completed inner relief road is helping to bring similar benefits for Bridge Street and Station Road.

Taunton’s other great advantage is that, being sited on the banks of a river, there are no hills to struggle up wearily, laden with purchases. On the other hand should shopping fatigue set in then the town centre does boast an outstanding choice of restaurants, cafes and tea rooms to revive you!
