The main industries are agriculture and education with five schools in Bruton. King's School, founded in 1519, Bruton School for Girls, Sexey's School and a primary school.

The town has a small range of shops and a range of public houses and restaurants including the award winning 'At the Chapel'. There are many other charming towns nearby which together offer a wide range of shopping, cultural and sporting activities.
