South Somerset Tourist Information Centres

A warm welcome awaits everyone at our multi award winning South Somerset Visitor Information Centre & Gift Shop, conveniently located on the iconic A303 at Cartgate Picnic Site. 

A perfect stop if you're en-route to the South West or taking a break in our glorious region.  With a privately run cafe next door, plenty of room to stretch your legs and walk the dog, and lots of free parking, it's no wonder a stop here has become part of the holiday itself.  The centre is only a short drive from Yeovil town centre and popular with both visitors and residents. 

With so much choice of what to do, where to go and where to stay, our friendly and knowledgeable staff are on hand to help you plan a perfect day or relaxing holiday. We offer a fantastic range of Somerset brochures and leaflets as well as UK wide destination guides, books and OS maps. 

We proudly support more than 20 local Somerset and South West makers, businesses and producers, so you might just find a special keepsake to make your holiday last that little longer. 

We also sell RADAR keys for access to disabled toilets nationwide. We are able to copy leaflets in larger print, an induction hearing loop is available and there is level access.





Want to know where to explore, secret gems, and local hints and tips?

We've produced a number of handy free guides, Things to Do, Dog friendly Days Out and Accessibility to help you make the most of your time here and in the wider area.  You will also find some great itineraries for naturalists, historians, garden enthusiasts and explorers.  And in addition, a wide selection of general free brochures, maps and cycling and walking trails to download too.
