Free Rainy Day Activities
We can’t always rely on dry days and sunshine, so we thought that we would provide a little information and a few ideas on things to do and places to visit on a rainy day!
In and around Weston-super-Mare there are a few free ways to spend a wet day out!
Browse around The Sovereign Shopping Centre and pop into Waterstones who are always happy for you to browse their books, and the children’s section has a real fish display as well as reading tables and chairs.
Close by you will find Cadbury Garden Centre and Sanders Garden World. Both have a selection of indoor and outdoor plants, cards, gifts, books, toys, small pets, aquatics, local produce and restaurants! They hold various events throughout the year including craft workshops, gardening workshops and children’s events.
Cadbury also has a small outdoor but undercover play area! You can certainly while away a good few hours wandering round and enjoying a bite to eat! No charge for going in for a browse, and the staff are always happy to answer any questions about plants or pets!

There are a host of things to do once on The Pier (additional charges apply), from a 4D cinema to Pirate Adventure Cove, or Afternoon Tea at Tiffany's.
If you have younger children (12 and under), there are two fantastic indoor play centres in Weston, Rascals and Jump N Jackz. Both serve hot and cold food and drinks so you can enjoy a coffee whilst watching your little ones play in a secure environment. Jackz also has wifi.
Head over to our neighbouring resort of Brean Sands for Brean Play and Brean Splash - hours of undercover fun with swimming and soft play.
Court Farm Country Park, Animal Farm and Puxton Park all offer covered activities and indoor play barns, and as long as you bring your wellies and waterproofs then you can still enjoy a rainy day out. Bristol Zoo and Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm also offer under cover areas and exhibits.
There is so much to see and do in the area, that you can still enjoy your holiday in Weston-super-Mare even if you didn’t pack the sunshine!
