Wednesday Market

Why not visit the Historic harbour town of Watchet for its Wednesday Market, with stalls offering a variety of local produce and craft. Travel from any station along our line on selected Wednesdays in the comfort of one of our heritage carriages and receive 10% advance discount (when purchased online) off our standard return prices. 

There has been a market in Watchet since the 13th century and this tradition continues today with the lively and colourful Watchet Summer Market. Every Wednesday, from May to September, brightly-coloured gazebos are erected on The Esplanade, overlooking the harbour and marina, and traders arrive to offer the best of local produce and craft.

The main 2018 season runs from 5th May to 29th September, with stalls trading from 9.30am to 3.30pm offering fruit and veg, cheeses and chutneys, bakery goods, cakes and chocolate, garden plants, books, local art and crafts, gifts, antiques and curios and introducing a fresh fish stall. 

Sunday Street Fair

Each month Watchet will hold a street fair with a special theme hosting live music, street food, entertainment and a buzz unique to our town! We are also offering connection tickets to this.
