The Somerset County Museum has many educational and interesting items and often has exhibitions of local and wider interest. Vivary Park with it's functioning bandstand. The park is situated close to the shopping centre it hosts the annual Taunton Flower Show and proves to be an absolute haven within the town - a place to relax and refresh yourself during a days shopping and looking around.
