Christmas Shopping in Watchet 2022

You’ve heard it all before. Shop local this Christmas!

It really is true that local shop keepers give a little jig when they make a sale!  So why not make our day and buy something from us!

This Christmas Watchet is adopting a Star theme along Swain Street and we hope to have lots of them for you to see. Why not add some to your festive illuminations.

Jennie from Perfectly Lovely Interiors has been busy arranging the Late Night Shopping Extravaganza on 9th December. The programme is included below. Please come out and support the local businesses by spending with them, in return there will be a few bargains for you too. Some of the shops have free gifts for the first sales, some have special items on discount and others have arranged food and drink.

Father Christmas will be arriving during late night shopping and there is a free grotto for children.

Welcome to our Website!


Welcome to our beautiful Watchet website! Take a look around!

The lovely bright Watchet Scratch the Surface logo and colour coded signage is Watchets own branding and marketing strategy.

Central government funding helped set up the Coastal Communities Team back in 2015. As part of the initial funding CCT set up a Branding Committee which set out to produce a logo and colour coding strategy for the promotion of Watchet. This logo and strategy was agreed by CCT,  Watchet Town Council and Onion Collective (Fund holder) as a joint town marketing strategy. The Watchet Scratch the Surface logo is available for use to promote our lovely town, please contact if you would like to use this logo on your promotional information.

This website was funded by a grant from LEADER, a European Union initiative funding community-led local development for rural areas. Its aim is to promote Watchet, support Watchet businesses and advertise Watchet Events.

Watchet Visitor Centre actively promote Watchet using the Watchet Scratch the Surface branding.
