Somerset's Street offers chilled lifestyle

The Somerset town of Street is ideal for people who are looking to enjoy a more sedate way of life and move away from the hustle and bustle of city living.

Around 11,000 people are resident in the town and it has a wealth of attractions that will suit people looking for property for sale in Street.

For fans of the arts, the Strode Theatre could be a regular haunt as it offers a real mixed programme of live events on stage, both professional and amateur, mainstream and arthouse films as well as live transmissions of opera, ballet and theatre from other leading UK venues.

The local leisure centre is also a great way to stay healthy and develop an active social life. It boasts a swimming pool as well as a well-equipped gym.

Shoppers will also be very tempted by the nearby Clarks Village. This designer outlet village has more than 90 stores, including big brand names like GAP, Monsoon, Coast, Jaeger, Timberland, Joules, M&S, Next, Clarks and Whistles.

As well as shopping, the development also has lots to keep children amused, while the adults shop. There is a King Arthur's Castle and an infant's play area, plus a traditional carousel.

Street also benefits from good transport links to other major English towns and cities. Local bus services are operated by National Express, Badgerline and Nippy Bus, while the main local road is the A39, which links with the M5 motorway and beyond.

History buffs will also be interested to learn Street was the original home of the shoe-making firm of C&J Clark, which started in the town in 1825. Clarks remains a household name for shoes throughout the world, and the company still has a headquarters in Street.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801708597-ADNFCR
