Living in Axbridge: The local area guide

Like many of Somerset’s idyllic towns, Axbridge is a picturesque market town featuring Georgian buildings, rich medieval history and charming independent shops. It’s the perfect place to wander, stop and marvel at traditional stone-built facades, take tea, see the 13th century church or visit the local museum.

A wide variety of shops meld with a thriving, and completely eclectic café culture. It’s not unusual to find a whimsical tea shop from yesteryear next to your local, modern-day bank.

Axbridge is a town that’s always got something going on, more than often something a little bit quirky. For those into health and well-being, the town hall holds regular yoga, pilates and even hula hooping classes! Cinephiles will be pleased to hear that there’s a local cinema, having been opened several years back after a renovation sponsored by the national lottery.

Demographics

Axbridge is home to a population of around 2,057 people and is a popular choice for those looking to settle down or spend their later years well. The primary age group is around 33-54, with 55-65 year olds coming a close second.

Locals are primarily English, more often than not living in detached or semi-detached houses, bungalows, or terraced housing. These residents tend to live in 3-4 bedroom properties that are mortgaged or often, owned outright. They own 1-2 cars per household, and prefer to use their own car or van as their main mode of transport.

Education

Bristol, around an hour away, is home to the majority of top secondary independent schools, with multiple universities and an unmatched, cosmopolitan feel that draws students to the city.

With a local supermarket, pharmacy, post office and petrol station, and many convenience stores, you won’t be short for groceries and other essentials.

If you’re looking for something to do with the little ones, a must is Brean Splash. As the name suggests, it’s full of slides and heated pools and at only 8 miles away from Axbridge, it’s a wonderful way to keep the family entertained all year round.
