Yeovil is a town in Somerset. The helicopter manufacturer AugustaWestland is the major local industry.

Get in[edit]

By train[edit]

Thanks to the foresight of Victorian railway engineers, Yeovil is on two railway lines that cross but do not link up and is therefore proud to possess two railway stations, 1 Yeovil Junction station and 2 Yeovil Pen Mill station.

Still, neither is more than a stone's throw from the centre of town and a free, frequent and fast connecting bus service is provided by FirstGroup as part of its commitment to providing an integrated transport service throughout South West England.
