The local area guide to living in Axbridge

One of many small towns in Somerset, Axbridge’s charm lies in its Georgian buildings, independent shops and stunningly picturesque medieval square.

King John’s Hunting Lodge, a museum that’s open to the public, takes pride of place on the square, and it’s right on the square where a farmers market takes place on the first Saturday of each month.

Full of history and quirks, there’s always something to do in Axbridge – whether that’s yoga, pilates taking a stroll around St. John the Baptist’s church, or even hula hooping in the town hall. The church holds regular coffee mornings, concerts and summer fetes too so there’s lots of opportunities to meet and greet the rest of the community.

Information about the local residents

Primarily English, local residents of Axbridge (roughly 2,057 people) tend to live in detached or semi-detached houses, or bungalows - terraced housing is also another popular option. They often live in 3-4 bedroom properties that are mortgaged or sometimes owned outright. Locals are primarily aged 33-54, with 55-64 year olds making up the next biggest group.

About 50% of the population is working full-time and roughly 50% are retired. Those working are doing so in industries ranging from education, healthcare and social work, to manufacturing, and construction. A handful work in the arts, entertainment and recreation industries, in accommodation, or with food.

When it comes to transport, driving a car or van is by far the most utilized method of commuting.

Nearby schools

Four out of five of the top rated primary schools in the area are all within an easy commutable distance of Axbridge, with Winscombe Primary being the closest.

Secondary students have some of the most highly commended options, like Kings of Wessex Academy and Fairlands Middle School, within easy reach of Axbridge.

The best independent schools tend to be found in Bristol (a commute of roughly an hour by bus or car), though Sidcot School, at under 3 miles away, is perfectly placed for both Axbridge-based primary and secondary students.

Getting around

Axbridge’s own train station closed in 1963, yet the pretty stone buildings still stand. The closest operating train station is in Weston-Super-Mare, roughly a 25-minute drive from Axbridge. Here, services run all over the UK.

With no local train station, it’s unsurprising that cars are the most popular choice of travel, though local and national buses also ensure the town is extremely well connected. These local services run regularly to other towns in Somerset like Cheddar, Wells and Wookey Hole and National Express serve the rest of the UK.

In roughly an hour’s drive, you can easily get to Bristol where, as well as two major rail stations - Bristol Temple Meads and Bristol Parkway - there’s an eclectic array of culture and shopping, as well as an international airport.

Local shops

Tea shops, cafés and coffee shops dot themselves amongst the independent shops of Axbridge. Some tea shops, like The Almshouse, are set in traditionally stone-built cottages and are just as appealing to look at as they are to visit.

With a local supermarket, pharmacy, post office and petrol station and many convenience stores, you won’t be short groceries and other essentials. The monthly farmers market makes a great place to source ingredients locally. You’ll find everything from organic honey, fruit and veg, to famous Somerset cheeses, prime cuts and of course, gifts and plenty of curios.

Should you want to venture further afield to shop, the coastal town Weston-super-mare is only 25 minutes away in the car, or you can easily get to Bristol in around an hour.
