Ilchester has had a fascinating past. It was once the county town of Somerset and one of the most important towns in the South West. It was first settled by the Romans but went on to be a hugely important market town for the Saxons, home to a royal mint and much coveted by the Vikings. It was the site of a few skirmishes during the English Civil War.
Today this is very much farming country, if you’re a foodie you really are in for a treat, there are so many great local producers to sample. From buffalo steaks to Ilchester cheese, the town offers the flavours of Somerset.
Along with all the fine food, Ilchester has its own museum detailing its fascinating past, from the Roman occupation, through to Ilchester jail and the Second World War. History buffs can also head to the nearby Fleet Air Arm Museum. If you prefer the great outdoors, then you certainly won’t be disappointed, Ilchester is surrounded by stunning scenery for walking, cycling or even paragliding if you’re feeling daring?
Now bypassed by the nearby A303, Ilchester offers easy access down to the Dorset coast via the A37. Ilchester retains its village charm but if you do need a little retail therapy, big high street names can all be found in Yeovil, 11 miles away. Yeovil is also the location of the nearest mainline station, offering routes to London and the south coast.
