Axbridge '29th best town in Britain' claims The Times
Axbridge has been declared to be the 29th best town in Britain by The Times.
The Somerset town is described by the national newspaper as “A Saxon stronghold against the Vikings” with “plenty of specialist shops and busy cafes,” which may come as a surprise to those to those who actually live there, while the town's popular and busy market fails to get a mention.
“Locals today are less Saxon fighters and more yummy mummies” and volunteers have helped re-open the Art Deco cinema, “complete with a “snogging sofa” to rekindle the character of the town.
Georgian houses in the town will set you back around £500,000, claims The Times, although the “cosy town-centre cottages are a smidge under £200,000.”
