History and culture
The 12th century castle was once in the middle of the town and you can still see remains of the wooden and stone keep and other earthworks. There are several different walks around the town, some taking you past these sites of interest and some offering spectacular views of Glastonbury and the Somerset Levels.
The Old House is a 15th century manor with medieval wall paintings, just a mile or so from Cary. Yeovil Haynes International Motor Museum is the UK's largest collection of cars and bikes, from classics of the 1950s and 1960s to modern supercars. Stourhead is a fabulous National Trust property which is most famous for its spectacular 18th century landscape gardens, lake, Greek temples, grottos and historic tree collection.
Local bus services run to Shepton Mallet, Wincanton and Yeovil. The main Paddington to Penzance railway line runs about a mile to the north. Local trains run to Bath and down to the coast at Weymouth. This development lies just off the Upper High Street.
