Ideas & Inspiration

Ideas and Inspiration when you visit Weston-super-Mare

We all love a holiday by the seaside, but more often than not when we go away somewhere, even to a destination that we may have visited many times before, we may get stuck for ideas and inspiration, or want to discover something new.

This area of the Love Weston website is dedicated to helping you make the most of your visit, whether you are here for the day, a few days or for a week!

Here's some of our top recommendations....

A Day in Weston-super-Mare

If you are just with us for a day at the seaside, a walk along the promenade is a must!  Start out at The Bay Cafe at The Tropicana and walk along the seafront, out to Knightstone Island, across the Causeway (tide permitting), or Marine Cove, and back.  On a clear day you will be able to see across to South Wales and there are plenty of cafes along the way to stop and rest for a drink or bite to eat.  This walk is flat and fully accessible for those in wheelchairs, pushchairs or with mobility aids.

You can head onto the Grand Pier (£1 entry) and visit one of their many cafes or restaurants, children's soft play area, 4D cinema, or play on the arcade machines. There are a selection of rides too if you are brave enough!

The High Street is closely located to the seafront with a selection of High Street stores, the undercover Sovereign Shopping Centre, and independent shopping districts, always great for a browse and to take home a souvenir.

Grove Park and Gill's Garden is also within walking distance of the seafront, so if you want to escape to somewhere more tranquil, this is a must-visit spot.  With a traditional bandstand that hosts free music concerts throughout the summer on selected days, a cafe, and Gold-winning "In Bloom" gardens, enjoy a leisurely stroll, spot for a picnic or enjoy the children's play area.

If you have come on the coach for the day and it is wet weather, we highly recommend you take the Number 126 bus from the seafront and head out to Cheddar or Wells for the Day - visit the Tourist Information Centre (May to Sept) at The Tropicana for the latest information on bus times and services, or give them a call on 01934 88 88 77.

A few days in Weston-super-Mare

If you are staying for a short break, take our advice above and have a day enjoying Weston-super-Mare, and a day out enjoying the beautiful City of Wells with The Bishop's Palace and Cathedral must-see attractions.

Our small, friendly neighbouring resort of Burnham-on-Sea makes for a nice day out, home to the UK's shortest Pier and with one of highest percentages of independent shops, as well as a host of cafes serving excellent food.  There is a sandy beach and long, flat promenade.

You may also like to have a day in Bristol, easily accessible by road, rail and bus, with plenty to see and do.

Check out the local theatre productions as both The Blakehay Theatre and The Playhouse have a packed diary of performances throughout the year, sample some of our best restaurants such as Bistrot Pierre and Tarantellas.

One week in Weston-super-Mare

Adding onto all we have mentioned above, if you have children then take them to Brean Leisure Park, Brean Play and Brean Splash!  These will provide hours of entertainments for families with children of all ages.

Noah's Ark Zoo Farm, Court Farm Country Park, Hutton Moor Leisure Centre and AJ's Karting are all great days out for families too.
