Axbridge is a town in Somerset, England on the River Axe. The town lies on the southern edge of the Mendips.

Axbridge grew in the Tudor period as a centre for cloth manufacture, but its decline led to stagnation and the preservation of many historic buildings in the town centre. These include King John's Hunting Lodge (actually a Tudor building) and the thirteenth century parish church.
