VISIT SOMERTON DURING YOUR STAY AT LONG HAZEL PARK, CARAVAN PARK & CAMPSITE

During your stay, we recommend a visit to the market town of Somerton, which was the former county town and thought to be the 14th century capital of Wessex.

As a market town, Somerton has held a weekly market since the Middle Ages and is known for the Market Place, which was constructed in 1673. Archaeological remains of the town suggest occupancy from Celtic times, with local people at the time adopting a Roman lifestyle.

Somerton is home to several antiques shops and small cafes, with nearby Langport and Muchelney also worth a visit.
