Langport is a very small town on the edge of the Somerset Levels, but it's actually rather nice to have a stroll around so if you're popping out for provisions, park in the big car park past the parade of shops and have a mooch about. There's not really much in the way of shops; a couple of quirky interiors places and if it's the right day of the week there might be a few stalls in the little covered market, or once a month, the Saturday vintage market. Anyway, what is nice is the riverside walk that starts right by the car park, and if you want to, you can go the mile and a half or so to Mucheleny where you can see the ruined abbey and the church where there's a 17th century painted roof with bare breasted angels. The other side of the street, the Walter Bagehot Town Gardens have an outlook of the moors and the railway viaduct; it's quite a pleasant spot for a picnic with an ensuing stroll through the gate and out onto the field; if you’d rather eat in one of the pubs or cafes, try the quirky Art Tea Zen Café or Kitchen down by the Wharf.
