Mini guide to Yeovil

     

Located in Somerset in the south of England, Yeovil is a relatively small town with a population of about 40,000 people. During the Industrial Revolution it made a name for itself as a glove manufacturer, which led to its local football team being named the Glovers. These days it is a pleasant market town that retains many good examples of its interesting historical past.

For sites of historical interest, the 16th century Montacute House is a popular destination with visitors. Its construction is credited to Sir Edward Phelips, a successful lawyer and politician of the time. The building is now owned by the National Trust and is a concrete example of Sir Edward Phelips' wealth and standing in the community at the time it was built.

The town's Fleet Air Army Museum invites visitors to witness one of the world's largest aviation museums. There are over 90 aircraft in the collection, of which over 40 are historic. The collection includes the Concorde 002. Meanwhile, the Museum of South Somerset has displays chronicling the historical development of Yeovil and its neighbouring towns in the South Somerset region.

For shopping, Yeovil has all manner of establishments including many well known stores, as well as a large selection of independent retailers. Glovers Walk and Quedam Shopping Centre offer a good selection of shops in a pleasant indoor environment. There is also a good choice of venues for eating out, with a selection of both English and international cuisine.

For a day trip from Yeovil, try visiting some of its neighbouring towns and villages.
East Coker, for example, is a pleasant village with a traditional rural charm and is famous for being the last resting place of legendary author T S Eliot. Nearby Sutton Bingham, Stoford, Evershot, Halstock and Yetminster also offer glimpses of unspoilt country life.

By car, Yeovil can be reached via the A30 and A37. Yeovil Pen Mill is the nearest railway station, offering connections to other Somerset stations and various national links. Bristol International Airport supplies the nearest air connection.
