By Taxi

Essential from Castle Cary Railway station but otherwise it is much cheaper to use the local buses. But as the buses stop running early taxis are a useful method of transport for short local journeys.

Alternative Routes

Country lanes and back-roads.

If you have been here before, side-routes can be worth following. First, four routes close to Glastonbury and, second, two interesting long-distance routes from London and the Midlands.
