Things to do in Wincanton, Somerset
The charming market town of Wincanton overlooks the Blackmore Vale. Elegant Georgian houses and coaching inns record its former importance as a staging post on the main road from London to Plymouth.
Horses still contribute to the town's economy, thanks to Wincanton racecourse, which has a full National Hunt programme.
Drive through nearby Bayford and Stoke Trister to Cucklington for panoramic views across Wessex.
Pay and play golf course at the racecourse.
