Axbridge is a pretty town, lying at the foot of the Mendip Hills and looking out over the Somerset Levels. The town is blessed with a delightful Town Square, the focus of its narrow medieval streets.
The Square is flanked by town houses, pubs, restaurants and a Georgian Town Hall, and is overlooked by St. John’s Church. Though a small town now, Axbridge has been important in the past, once having its own mint, a series of Royal Charters dating back as far as King John, and as recently as 1974 it was the administrative centre of Axbridge Rural District.
Artefacts from various phases of Axbridge’ s long history can be found in the town’s free museum which is housed in the mis-named ‘King John’s Hunting Lodge’, the impressive Tudor merchant’s house which dominates one corner of the square. The building is owned by the National Trust and is operated by Axbridge & District Museum Trust.
As well as being an interesting and attractive town in itself, Axbridge is also close to many other places of interest. These include the Mendip Hills, with Cheddar Gorge and Caves, Wookey Hole, the City of Wells with its famous cathedral, the wetlands of the Somerset Levels known for its bird life, and a little further away the cities of Bristol and Bath and the seaside resorts of Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea.
