Oxfam Books & Music Taunton

Taunton is the county town of Somerset and the home of Somerset County Cricket. It is a great place to visit with a good variety of big name retail outlets and places to explore.

For example - The Taunton to Bridgewater Canal runs through the town and a footpath follows it - a walk which is so peaceful and interesting. 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.

Oxfam Books and Music in Taunton can be found on Bridge Street right next to Taunton's bridge over the Canal.

We are always looking to welcome new volunteers to our vibrant team. If you feel able to offer Oxfam some of your time, please either e-mail the shop Manager at: oxfamshopf3010@oxfam.org.uk or come on in and pick up an Application Form.
