Bridgwater, nestling quietly on the banks of the River Parrett, is at first glance like any other town, but it doesn't take long to realise that there is more to this industrial town than meets the eye, much more..

Bridgwater's history starts almost at the beginning with an entry in the Doomsday book. Throughout the following centuries it has played an important part in the growth of the area, in 1402 it was a major shipping port in the West Country and today it is a thriving industrial town attracting many new businesses and major retail parks.

Bridgwater's social life is also thriving with an abundance of pubs, restaurants and clubs. It has many amateur drama & theatre groups who regularly perform at the local Town Hall and Arts Centre. It has a strong live music scene with local bands playing around the town almost every weekend.

The town is probably most famous for its Autumn Fair and Guy Fawkes Carnival, which if you are in the area at these times will certainly be a memory you will have forever
