Axbridge is a vibrant medieval market town, set on the southern edge of the Mendip Hills in rural Somerset.
Once part of a Saxon defence system against the Viking invaders, its history goes back to the reign of King Alfred. The town's early royal charters allowing it to hold markets, fairs and become a royal borough reflected its prosperity from the wool trade in medieval times. It even had its own mint, with coins showing the town's symbol; the Lamb and Flag.
The charming town square still shows much evidence of its former status, with many majestic medieval buildings including the handsome 13th Century Church and King John's Hunting Lodge, an early Tudor merchant's house that has been restored as a museum. The town also benefits from a number of restaurants, bars, two public houses, a post office and a range of local stores as well as an excellent primary school, pharmacy and doctors surgery. A regular farmers' market takes place on the first Saturday of each month. Axbridge is also situated within the Kings of Wessex School catchment area.
The surrounding countryside of the Somerset levels and the Mendip hills with a reservoir in between, provide excellent opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, windsurfing and sailing. The area also enjoys a good number of quality golf courses. Alternatively, relax and enjoy the beauty and atmosphere of this historic town.
