Currently, there are three shopping centres, as well as a main shopping strip with supermarkets, major banks, a library and post office.
The town is also known for its community events held throughout the year, such as the West Country Carnival and the Taunton Flower Show. Often considered as the birthplace of cider, Taunton is also home to the Somerset Country Cricket Club's County Ground.
