One of Somerset's bigger towns close to the Dorset border, with a range of major retailers and independent shops in the modern complex and round the smaller streets. There's plenty to do - a bowling alley, Ready2climb Adventure Zone, and a multiplex cinema; you might be fortunate enough to catch the Glovers playing at home, or if you want to escape the hustle and bustle then have a stroll in Nine Springs Country Park. The Octagon Theatre has some good shows, comedy and films and is worth looking up if you're staying nearby and fancy a night's entertainment. You're rather spoilt for choice when it comes to somewhere to eat, though The Green Room, Tamburino and Daniel Sushi are popular. Nearby are Fleet Air Arm Museum, Haynes Motor Museum, Montacute House and Tintinhull Gardens.
