We took the Land Train up to the amusements and tried our hand at grabbing, unsuccessfully min you, at the Thomas the Tank Engine toys.They have a nice Adventure Cove soft play area for the youngsters and a wicked looking indoor go kart track for the teenagersWe stopped for a very decent fish and...

  • All the fun of the fair

    There is a ferris wheel and other amusements which attract the brave. I have never liked such things, but they were quite busy.We took a one way ticket [£1.50 adult; £1 adults and OAPs] from Weston Beach to Royal beach where our car was parked. The driver tooted his whistle at regular intervals to warn pedestrians. This land train was very welcome...

  • Visit the Seaquarium

    The Seaquarium is an exhibition of sea life, from orals, anemones and jelly fish to sharks, rays and moray eels. Not all the fish are sea fish , there are also river fish like piranha.Some of the exhibits are in small tanks, where others are in large ones, and there is a tunnel that goes beneath some of the exhibits, so you see them in their...

  • Pottery Painting fun for all the family

    With Pottery painting it's a fun activity that all the family can get involved in. It's great for rainy days, which we get a lot of, or any day. It's not expensive & if you time it right you can collect your fired Pottery before you go home. They'll even post it for a small additional charge. And now they even do Build a Bear with all the usual...

  • Ice Cream Sundaes

    We had a lovely time on the balcony overlooking the Grand Pier.We had our fish and chips earlier, on the pier, but they were happy for us to come in for just drinks and desserts.The staff were really friendly and helped out with our youngster ... supplying extra spoons for the ice creams.

  • The best of the best

    The Atlantic is away from the hustle of the seafront. It is 400 yards down Meadow Street from the Silica (locally known as 'the carrot'). I am a pensioner and it has been there longer than I have been alive! I love the place and I tell everyone I know just how good the fish and chips are. Generous portions and better value than the others in...

    Druckers is a coffee shop in the towns shopping centre. It is open plan with a raised section near to the window. There is a small smokers section on the raised section.The food counter is packed full of mouth watering ckes, pastries, croissants and sandwiches. They were all so tempting but I managed to resist them, mainly because of the cost but...

  • Fast Food

    Just the same as any other fast food restaurant, there is a very tiny smoking area down stairs and a larger area upstairs along with the toilets. I had a XL Bacon Double Cheeseburger Meal with Diet Coke.

  • Best Fish and Chips in town

    Excellent freshly cooked fish and chips, all prepared to order. You can eat-in, in the small cosy restaurant, or take away. Really friendly and polite staff. But beware there is very rarely a time when there is no queue! But it does move quickly and it's well worth it.

Weston-Super-Mare Nightlife

  • Belvedere Cocktails!

    I recently went to Belvederes opening weekend and was very impressed! There were ladies in red dresses and smart jackets greeting me with champagne and taking my contact details in exchange for a 2 for 1 cocktail voucher. (Fair trade if you ask me!). The cocktails were great and got the job done! A few canapes being passed around and great music....

Weston-Super-Mare Transportation

  • Car Parking

    There is plenty of parking available in the multi-story car park at the Soverign shopping centre, I`m not too sure about the other tariffs but it costs £6 for 6-12 hours.The car park is litterally a minutes walk from the sea front.

Weston-Super-Mare Local Customs

  • by kenyong Written Sep 1, 2006

    Elements is a small bar situated on the same strip as Dragon Kiss and is situated beside Yates. Despite its size it has a charming, relaxed yet upbeat atmosphere. Admittedly its not the best place in Weston-Super-Mare (toilets could do with a paint job) to go but it does make a refreshing change from establishments such as Dragon Kiss where you can barely move without someone pushing past and spilling yours or their drink all over you. It is also one of those increasingly rare venues where you can have a conversation with your friends without having to shout at point blank range down their ear hole in order for them to hear you. The feel good atmosphere was undoubtledly aided by the DJ who seemed to inject energy and enthusiasim into my partner and myself with his excellent choice of smooth rhythms and funky beats. Overall I would say it is the perfect place to go before you move on to your chosen club for the evening as it certainly put me in the mood and to help matter the drinks were fairly cheap (doubles for £3).

Weston-Super-Mare Warnings and Dangers

  • Watch the tide and the notices

    All along the beach are signposts saying DANGER SINKING MUD.The beach has firm sand for quite a long way and then where there are sandbars there are channels of mud.Keep a eye open too because though the beach stretches for a long long way out, the tide will come and if children are playing and not aware of the tide, they could be in danger.

  • Grand Pier 'amusements'

    There was something horribly disappointing about the Grand Pier, well, the large arcade of 'amusements' in particular. For the grand price of 30p you can take a train ride along the pier and get there even more quickly. To everyone's horror a small child slipped off the train's seats and had to run a third of the pier's length to catch up. No, he...

  • Amusement Arcade Addiction

    Be very careful when going to any of the amusement arcades as they can be very addictive and it is so easy to lose a small fortune in them. Just one more pound leads to another and then another and pretty soon you have spent all of your money.There is only one winner and that is the owner of the arcade as he sits counting all of your money at the...

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A nice warm jumper even in September as the evenings especially can get quite chilly.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There are a couple of places on the beach where you can buy things like buckets, spades, balls, inflatables, snorkelling equipment etc.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Occasionaly Somerset Cricket Club will move away from their home ground at Taunton and play a game in Weston Super Mare.

    Equipment: Pair of eyes to watch the game, and hat and sunscreen as it can get quite hot if you are sat there all day in the sun.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: When I was younger we used to go to Weston virtually every week. The one week we were apparently on the beach when we were approached by one of the horse and cart owners. He had got a new cart which he wanted to test out so he asked us. It was in the shape of a duck and was called Dilly Duck, from that day it became a firm favourite of mine and I think I used to go on it every time we went to Weston.

    I`m not too sure if Dilly Duck is still there now though.
