Local area

HOST Sedgemoor Campus is in the historic market and old port town of Bridgwater, while the Hinkley Campus is 10 miles away at Hinkley Point. Just minutes from the M5, Bridgwater is easily accessible from Taunton and Weston-super-Mare and is less than an hour away from the city of Bristol.

Bridgwater is a lively market town which is home to several great pubs and restaurants, a selection of shops, and a cinema. Also close by are the historic towns of Glastonbury, home of the festival, and Wells with its cathedral and, some claim, the oldest purely residential street with original buildings surviving intact in Europe.

For outdoor enthusiasts, Exmoor is on the doorstep, as is the beautiful north Somerset and Devon coast with access to the South West coastal path. For sports, Taunton is the home of Somerset County Cricket Club as well as the racecourse. Nearby Highbridge hosts Somerset Speedway and Bristol and Exeter have top level football and rugby clubs.

Just a quick note to say thanks for organising the HPC Campus site tour last Thursday. The facilities look fantastic and we had a great visit kindly chaperoned by Tim.
