Somerset’s county town of Taunton is a key point on the Great Western route between London Paddington and the South West. The growth of the town and its importance to rail travel in the local area mean that we need to upgrade the station’s facilities, fit for current use.
Great Western Railway along with local and national partners, including the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership, Somerset West and Taunton Council, Somerset County Council and the Department for Transport, invested to redevelop the station and its interchange facilities including:
These improvements create a safer and enhanced pedestrian environment, becoming a fitting introduction to anyone visiting Taunton.

Thank you for your patience whilst the upgrades were being completed.
