Set among the emerald-coloured hills of Somerset, the quiet pace of Taunton is a pleasant side-dish to big city escapades in England.

Taunton is about taking tea of an afternoon, watching a cricket match among amiable crowds, and touring churches and relics that go way back to Saxon times. It's also the main shopping destination in Somerset, though don't expect sparkling glass-clad malls that loom over the town centre - Taunton offers quaint boutiques, family-run butchers and bakers, and independent stores selling life's essentials, all housed in a pretty jumble of architectural styles, from beautiful half-timber structures to Georgian and Victorian buildings of stone and brick.

Venturing into the past in Taunton is easy, especially at the well-preserved Taunton Castle. Built around 900 years ago, the Museum of Somerset has now taken residence after a major restoration project. You can pick up information at the Tourist Information Centre in the town to guide you around the Taunton Heritage Trail - well worth doing if historical treasures are your thing.

For a quintessentially English experience, stake a place at the lovely County Ground, home of Somerset County Cricket Club and host of some international fixtures. The sound of that thwack of ball on bat - accompanied by a pint of Somerset cider and a summertime picnic - is a priceless memory.

Having a car makes it easy to get around Taunton. You can pick up your rental car at a downtown location in Taunton and be on the open road within minutes.
