Things to do in Street, Somerset
Street is just to the south of Glastonbury, and owes much of its more recent development to the influence of Clarks, the world famous shoe manufacturers.
The town now boasts a major factory-shopping complex - Clarks Village - and there is an interesting Shoe Museum at the company's headquarters, the museum traces the history of shoe making since Roman times. Many other shops specialise in bargain-priced shoes and leather goods.
Street has a modern theatre and two swimming pools, one outdoors.
Ivythorn Hill - a beautifully wooded area in the care of the National Trust, offers pleasant walks and fine views over Sedgemoor to the Quantock hills.
