It first became a tourist destination in the 12th Century and the town's pretty cobbled streets and courtyards continue to attract history buffs, and shoppers. For a perfect introduction, head for landmarks like the Minster, St. Mary's Church and the market.

 Langland’s Garden Centre have everything you need to help inspire and fire your imagination.  You can buy everything for your garden needs from plants to containers to garden furniture and there is a gift shop for homewares including candles and ceramics.  There is a farm shop selling hearty pies, pastries and cheeses and their award winning scones.  Langland’s Coffee Shop serve home cooked food, with the best locally produced meat and vegetables. So, for example, their meat comes from the local butcher; which means that they serve proper butchers sausages with our meals.  All of our cakes are baked at the garden centre, on site in their kitchens, which is why they are so fresh and tasty.
