Royal Bath and West of England Society Showground (Shepton Mallet)

This is the home for Yeovil Town, currently playing in the Football League Two. The stadium is not large and very affordable to visit. While mostly utilized for football, the ground has been used for various other activities in 2016 and 2017.

Mendip’s Raceway (Shipham)

This is an attraction for kids as well as adults. For around $6-$12, you can visit Medip’s Raceway in Shipham and spend here all day. It is located in Warren Hill Road, Shipham. It is famous for it’s banger racing, a dirt race with dirty old cars. But it is something that even watching will get your adrenaline pumping.

And the repeat value is amazing. You can get to know the drivers, see their work on the engines and the car itself and, here’s a little secret, you can even drive here by yourself.
