Ilminster is probably the finest small market town in South Somerset. With easy access from all major roads, it is the perfect place to break a long journey, for a special weekend break or for a longer holiday off the regular tourist trail but still close to many major attractions. The town gets its name from its historic association to Muchelney Abbey and from the River Ile that virtually surrounds the town. Its medieval streets huddle around the 15thc Minster Church, there are regular markets and the town is surrounded by working farmland and woodland.
