One of Watchet’s claims to fame is that Samuel Taylor Coleridge was inspired to write The Rime of the Ancient Mariner while visiting the town. A statue commemorating his poem is located on The Esplanade, overlooking the harbour, and collections and displays in the museum (based in the former market building) tell the story of the town. Watchet owes much of its 19th-century prosperity and development to its sea and rail links with the rest of Britain. Iron ore mined in the nearby Brendon Hills (part of the Exmoor National Park) was exported to the South Wales steel works across the Bristol Channel and the town was served by two railway companies. Today, tourism is the main industry here and in recent years the focus has been on regeneration. The harbour has become a marina for pleasure craft and the West Somerset heritage Railway still serves Watchet, its station a popular stopping-off point for day-trippers. From luxury cottages Watchet and all the attractions of the West Somerset coast, Exmoor National Park and Quantock Hills can be discovered.
