This is an excellent display of local artefacts, pictures, countryside etc. Also railway history and a good kitchen display with a "talking" cook and housekeepr. Upstairs there is more to see - it is especially worthwhile sitting and watching 4 short videos of local events. All this for FREE although they ask for a donation. Coming into Dulverton turn left immediately after the bridge and follow the road around a big curve until it ends in the carpark with access to the centre. otherwise access through the information centre in the main street. This also has a good supply of maps, leaflets etc and the best postcards!
Dulverton is not exactly somewhere I could imagine spending an entire day at, but it does provide a good centre by which to stop by and stock up. There are plenty of conveniences such as a local co-op for your simple needs (bread, milk and some alcohols: beers...not wines, go somewhere decent for wine), small thrift shops as well as some tea rooms including Lewis's which is a personal favourite. There is a beautiful church at the top of the town which is worth popping into, and in the centre of town there is a fish and chip shop which opens at lunchtime from 12 noon until 2pm. There is also a bakery which sells a selection of baked breads, pies, sausage rolls as well as many sweet items, the game pie is delicious and enormously filling. The tea rooms near the co-op (I have forgotten the name!) are smaller than Lewis's but offers an entirely different ambience, more cosy and homely, helped in no small way by the warm, friendly manners of the owners (of which the landlady kindly ushered us in for tea as we oogled the menu outside, proclaiming the redundancy of pneumonia when there are menu's indoors to browse).
By far this is no Dunster or Tiverton etc, but it is a quaint little town that is central to lots of local attractions and is worth stopping by for an hour or two.
