Things to do

Beaches

Weston-super-Mare boasts a long family friendly sandy beach which is famous for donkey rides and the spectacular Weston Air Show in June every year.

For a more peaceful beach Sand Bay is just a few minutes away by car or bicycle. If you wish to travel a bit further afield you can also spend time exploring the nearby coastal towns of Brean, Burnham-on-Sea and Portishead.

Weston-super-Mare has a number of arts venues. The Playhouse serves both tourists and the local population. The Winter Gardens on the seafront hosts shows, exhibitions and conferences and The Blakehay Theatre & Community Arts Centre is a small venue housed in a former Baptist church.

You can also spend time visiting the North Somerset Museum in the center of Weston which tells the story of the local disctrict from pre-history to the present.

Walking

If you fancy a more active break then the nearby Mendip Hills are ideal. The hills are bounded by the Somerset Levels which also offer excellent walking opportunities in the south and west and along the River Avon and Chew Valley Lake in the north.

Much of the Mendips are designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and are home to a number of limestone features, including caves (Wookey Hole), and a number of gorges, most famously Cheddar Gorge and Burrington Combe.
