Things to do in Bruton, Somerset

Bruton is a picturesque little town on the river Brue, founded in Saxon times and retaining many intriguing glimpses of its past including Jacobean almshouses, Abbey remains and the famous Dovecot.

Narrow alleys, called Bartons link the High Street with the riverside walk, 15th century Packhorse Bridge and magnificent twin towered church.

A small museum tells much of the town's history. The watermill at Gant's Mill has recently been restored and opened to the public, while the Mill on the Brue activity centre is renowned for its programme of outdoor pursuits for young people.
