Somerset Major Centres and Market Towns

Somerset's three major centres and network of diverse market towns play a vital role in our thriving economy.

The primary centres in Taunton, Bridgwater and Yeovil are focused on growth through sustainable and prosperous development.

They each have exciting regeneration projects, which will provide increasing economic vitality for generations to come. For more information log on to the following websites.

Somerset's 20 market towns each possess a distinctive character, community focus and thriving local economy that has driven commercial trade for generations. 

Our market towns are key rural economic and social centres, with unique architecture and character that generate a hub of activity and support surrounding villages.

They provide the opportunity to establish unique businesses that are at the heart of the community, offer vital local employment and inspire great loyalty from customers. For more information on market towns, see the Somerset Market Towns Forum website.
