For a traditional bucket and spade break, the seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare offers all the family favourites.
From donkey rides on the beach to classic Piers, Weston-super-Mare is an ideal spot for a quintessential seaside holiday. The wide sweep of Weston Bay has miles of clean, safe sandy beaches that lend the perfect spot for a day's frolicking by the sea.
Take a walk along the Grand Pier and get caught up in thrilling rides, mazes and go-karts. Or for a more relaxed stroll, just take in the fantastic views over the Bristol Channel from the pier's viewing platform or enjoy a bird's eye view from the Wheel of Weston. Head back to the beach and seek out wind and water sports, or for less energetic ways to enjoy the water, try one of the boat trips around the Bay and further afield.
You'll find plenty of undercover attractions near our featured Weston-super-Mare cottages for a rainy day too. The Grand Pier SeaQuarium has an amazing display of sea creatures and is a great day out for the whole family, or for a more educational trip, the Weston-super-Mare Museum covers the areas local history, archaeology of early inhabitants and wildlife. You might want to check out the world's largest dedicated Helicopter Museum too.
