Around 40,000 people regard the Somerset town as their home and it offers a great number of top-quality amenities.

Mentioned in the Domesday Book as Givele (which means the river noble) the town has a rich history and its Roman roots are in firm evidence throughout the locality.

Local history buffs will also be intrigued by the 14th-century Church of St John the Baptist, which offers the chance to find out more about the area's culture.

For those relocating, it may be also of interest to discover that there have been a number of new developments since then, including a major department store and other key shops. There is also an outdoor market held every Tuesdays and Fridays - which is a great opportunity to stock up on locally produced and sources goods.

Families with train-obsessed children will also be pleased by the small railway museum in the area - a great family trip for any little boy or girl. The Yeovil Railway Centre has a miniature railway and holds regular events, including being able to board a steam train and take a ride on its quarter of a mile track.

Anyone who enjoys the outdoors will also be delighted to discover the lovely countryside that surrounds the town. In particular, Preston Park and Yeovil Country Park are great places to spend a day out getting back in touch with nature, especially as the weather warms up.

In terms of commuting and travelling to other parts of the UK, one of the main advantages of Yeovil is that it has two different train lines so there are regular services to a number of key destinations, such as Bristol, Weymouth, London and Exeter.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801708315-ADNFCR
