Weston-super-Mare Attractions

Attractions in Weston-super-Mare offer some of the best days out and things to do in the South West.

Whether you are staying in the resort and wishing to explore, or visiting us for the day, you will find plenty to keep you busy.

We have well known attractions in Weston-super-Mare, such as the Grand Pier which fronts the promenade, both great for a family day out, and both with places to grab a bite to eat and drink and enjoy various events throughout the season.

Also on the seafront you will find the popular Water Adventure Play Park, a secure adventure playground all year round, but with the addition of a splash pad between April and the end of September, allowing for hours of fun on a warm spring or summer day! 

If it is the quieter side of life you enjoy, the town is scattered with many parks and gardens, including Grove Park which is home to Gill's Garden and hosts many events and free music concerts throughout the summer.

Out of town a little you will find Weston-super-Mare Golf Course, AJ's Karting and Laser Tag, Court Farm Country Park, the Blakehay Theatre and Hutton Moor Leisure Centre offering everything from animals to animation to action!

And of course, there is our fantastic sandy beach, an attraction in itself offering golden sands, safe bathing water, our traditional Weston donkeys and a new Adventure Activity Zone which is open at weekends throughout the main season, weather permitting, offering a large inflatable helter skelter and disco dome.

In the area

In our neighbouring resort of Brean you will be spoilt for full on family fun!

Brean Leisure Park, Brean Play and Brean Splash are a kid's paradise with everything from crazy golf, to soft play and fun in the water. Brean Leisure Park is also the home of Sooty, and puts on many superb shows throughout the season.

At the opposite end of the scale, the National Trust site of Brean Down offers an insight into the flora and fauna of the area, and a walk to the top allows commanding views and the discovery of Brean Down Fort.

For a truly lovely experience, be sure to visit the smallest city in the UK - Wells.  With its cobbled streets, quirky shops and many cafes and restaurants you can amble away the day nicely.  Wells is also home to Wells Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace and Gardens which are both world class attractions and an absolute must if you are in the area for a few days.

Head towards Bristol, and you will find Noah's Ark Zoo Farm which is home to a range of farm and zoo animals including elephants and bears, as well as a cafe, picnic areas and play areas. It offers a full day out and we highly recommend a visit!

A week might not be enough

In summary, whatever your age the things to do and attractions in Weston-super-Mare and in the surrounding area offer the opportunity for a a jam packed week if you like to be busy!
