Watchet is a small fishing town with a harbour. It is a picturesque town with small side streets, a Museum and a railway station. The West Somerset Railway also links up to the nearby village of Blue Anchor and on to Minehead. This line also passes through Dunster.
The Museum at Watchet has interesting collections and information about Watchet's maritime history, the old mineral railway, papermaking and fossils which have been found on the nearby beaches. This coastline is famous for its fossils and rocks which have been found in abundance here.
