Still So Much To Do!

Rainy Day Ideas in Weston-super-Mare

Free Rainy Day Activities

When the sun isn't shining in Weston-super-Mare here are some ideas for things to do!

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 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!

In the nearby City of Bristol there are two fantastic museums – The M Shed, which is a Museum celebrating the history of Bristol, offers exhibits, interactive displays, galleries, activities….something to interest and entertain all the family!

Situated on the harbourside it is close to many great restaurants and cafes too, as well as the SS Great Britain, and The Matthew (chargeable admission).  Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, is located at the top of Park Street next to Bristol University.  Situated over 3 floors, it’s exhibits include ancient Egypt, sea dinosaurs, art, animals, taxidermy, fossils, archaeology and an under 7′s gallery! 

Chargeable Rainy Day Activities

The Grand Pier has an entry charge of £1.00 per person (excluding babies and children in pushchairs, or if you have purchased tickets to an event), and does not allow re-admittance.  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 want to get active, go for a swim at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre, or pop in to AJ's Go Karting and Laser Tag Centre, which also offers cafe facilities for those who just wish to spectate!

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, Puxton Park and Animal Farm 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!
