Taunton itself has also been home to many historically important events, including the Second Cornish Uprising of 1497 and the coronation of the Duke of Monmouth, who crowned himself king of England in 1685. You'll also discover a thriving community spirit here, too. So you'll find it easy to make new friends. Central Taunton is part of the annual West Country Carnival circuit and hosts the Taunton Flower Show.
