Yeovil

UK travel information

Somerset is home to many picturesque and attractive towns, and Yeovil – in the south of the country – is one of the most popular of all. An ancient town that existed before the Roman occupation of the area, Yeovil today harbours much of great interest in both historical and cultural terms, and is a charming town in which to spend some time.

A famous symbol of Yeovil – although actually in the neighbouring village of Barwick – is a turreted folly topped with a statue charmingly known as ‘Jack the Treacle Eater’, while the town also boasts a well preserved 15th century farmhouse and barn, Hamstone Abbey.

Yeovil hotels



This historic town has much to offer in the way of old and interesting architecture, and the selection of pubs and cafes tucked away down quiet streets, plus the excellent rail and road networks, make it a very popular tourist destination in a very beautiful part of England.
