Williton, Somerset

Williton is a medium-sized village in West Somerset. It has many of the facilities of a small town, being the administrative centre for the district. It is situated 2 miles south off the coast and is placed roughly equidistant between Minehead, Bridgwater and Taunton.

Williton is an excellent centre for walking holidays, with easy access for visiting the Quantocks, the Brendons and Exmoor as well as the coast at Minehead, Dunster, Blue Anchor and Watchet.

There are facilities nearby for sailing and wind-surfing as well as the usual beach activities. On the nearby cliffs, fossils are exposed. (More on these activities can be found in the local attractions section of this site).

It is home to one of the ten stations of the West Somerset Railway. There is easy access to the West Somerset Railway which is the longest private railway in the country.

Other places of interest are the Tropiquaria animal farm at the old radio station - great for entertaining the kids and the Bakelite Museum. Halsway Folk Music Centre is not far away.
