The Culture Trip picks Bruton as its Somerset Local Favourite 2015

The Culture Trip picks Bruton as its Somerset Local Favourite 2015

The Culture Trip has picked its ten coolest neighbourhoods in the UK, and Bruton is the Somerset Local Favourite. A small town of 3,000 nestled in Somerset’s River Brue valley may not seem the likeliest contender for one of Britain’s coolest neighbourhoods, but Bruton boasts an arty allure that could rival any urban cultural hub. Alongside its charming community of antique shops, cafés and restaurants – including the beautiful At The Chapel, a bakery, restaurant and wine store located in a former church – the town is also home to the most recent addition to the Hauser & Wirth group of galleries. Opened in 2014, the gallery – which also has locations in London, New York, Los Angeles and Zurich – welcomed over 100,000 visitors in its first year and has hosted exhibitions by American installation artist Jenny Holzer and Swiss video artist Pipilotti Rist.
