London to Taunton

Posted in England, Somerset by folkestonejack on June 10, 2010

I haven’t been to Paddington station in a while, but I’m back today to catch a train to Taunton for a long weekend. I arrived early so headed out to one of my favourite cafes in London – Bonne Bouche – to buy a mozarella, spinach, bacon and chicken baguette. As delicious as always and definetly to be recommended.

Anyway, back to Paddington. In a time when many of the developments of the victorian world no longer seem so striking, I like the fact that Brunel’s vast train shed is one victorian wonder that retains its power to impress.

My journey was relatively straightforward today and before I knew it the First Great Western HST had delivered me to Taunton with plenty of time left in the evening to relax and chill out.
