Cricket has always played a huge role in the county of Somerset, and a stay in Taunton is the perfect chance to enjoy a game whether you're an avid follower or new to the sport.
A game of cricket is a great way to spend a day in Taunton, and it’s a fun experience even if you don’t know much about the game. Please check the official website for dates and matches. There's always a great atmosphere on match days and the whole family are welcome. The cricket ground is just a short drive from Taunton town centre too, so it's easy to reach.
Somerset County Cricket Ground has been home to Somerset County Cricket Club since 1882 and can hold more than 6,500 spectators. You'll also find Somerset Cricket Museum at the ground, and it sits on the outskirts of the ground in a listed building.
