Local Info

Bruton is a town in Somerset, southwest England, known for its lush green countryside. On a hill in Jubilee Park, the Dovecote is a former watchtower from the 16th century with views of the town. To the east, woodland trails lead to King Alfred’s Tower, a folly commemorating the end of the Seven Years’ War.

Despite being one of the smallest towns in England, smaller than some villages, Bruton has an abundance of fascinating shops, restaurants and a rich arts culture. They are all nestling in the valley of the River Brue, which reputedly derives its name from the Celtic word ‘briw’, meaning ‘vigorous’ or ‘brisk’.
