Yeovil is a town in Somerset. The helicopter manufacturer AugustaWestland is the major local industry.

Get in[edit]

Thanks to the foresight of Victorian railway engineers, Yeovil is on two railway lines that cross but do not link up and is therefore proud to possess two railway stations, Yeovil Junction and Yeovil Pen Mill. Still, neither is more than a stone's throw from the centre of town and a free, frequent and fast connecting bus service is provided by FirstGroup as part of its commitment to providing an integrated transport service throughout South West England.

Alternatively, the local Tesco Supermarket do a lovely range of cheap and cheerful fizzy ciders, typical of the region. Look out for brands such as Frosty Jack, Dry Blackthorn or even the supermarket's reasonably priced own brand cider beverage. On a summer's day, many Yeovilians can be seen enjoying the delights of the centrally located St John's Church town greens, gently supping the county's famous brew. The atmosphere is one of liveliness and joyful revelry, a characteristic of this effervescent South Somerset market town.
