Formerly the county town, Somerset’s name derives from ‘the people of Somerton’. The town was settled by the Romans who built a number of villas in the area. 100 years after the fall of the Roman occupation the Saxon’s moved in, pulling down many of the Roman buildings. The town grew in importance and eventually became the seat of regional power and the capital of the Kingdom of Wessex.
The weekly market dates back to the Middle Ages, however the highlight of the local calendar is the Music and Arts Festival.
