Welcome to The Antiques Tourist 2024!

This latest edition of our guide to interesting businesses across Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Devon brings you the very best our region has to offer! 


Our usual “roadtrip” for 2024 is around the interesting and varied county of Somerset. (Pages 4, 5 & 6). We start in Bridgwater – easy access from the M5, and then travel westwards towards Dunster, south to Taunton, then meandering around central and east Somerset, before ending up in south Somerset. This is quite an extensive journey, and is impossible to fully complete in one day! Allowing for the varied trading hours of every business, and the distances involved, this could be a 2-day or even 3-day excursion! 

And along the way why not pause to appreciate the industrial heritage in Bridgwater? The historic village of Dunster? The Somerset County Town of Taunton? The small towns of Langport, Somerton, and Castle Cary? The famous Glastonbury and the smallest city in England – Wells?  Visit Frome - a popular Mendip town in East Somerset; then the Yeovil area, and the Hamstone towns of South Somerset.

Elsewhere the businesses we feature stretch from Devon to Dorset and Wiltshire -; from South Molton, Tavistock and Ashburton in the west, to Pokesdown in Bournemouth, Christchurch, Salisbury and Pewsey in the east, and all points in between.

Please send us details and photos of your special “antiques road trip”.
