If that journey is by train or bus you have the added luxury of being able to sit back and enjoy the view. We have one of Britain’s greatest achievers to thank for the rail link between London and Somerset. Isambard Kingdom Brunel, that giant of the industrial revolution, was responsible for the Great Western Railway (GWR) - also known as the Holiday Line for opening up the West Country’s seaside resorts to visitors. Rail travel is enjoying a Renaissance in the UK and billionsofpoundsarebeingspentbyGWRmarkingthe biggest investment since Brunel’s time. Improvements are being made to the network, the fleet and the stations. Among the stations to have benefitted is Taunton, which has a welcome for visitors that befits it status as our County Town. Another station scheduled to be refurbished is Bridgwater which will remain faithful to Brunel’s original design. A real treat for the traveller is to take the train from Paddington to Taunton and dine in style on a Pullman Carriage - choosing from a menu of West County ingredients and enjoying silver service – and all the while keeping an eye on the hills, vales, villages and waterways that fly by.
