Weston-Super-Mare

UK travel information

The Somerset town of Weston-super-Mare remained a small village until the advent of the railways in the Victorian age, a change that made it – and many other such villages – easier to get to from regional surrounding towns.

The growth that followed saw Weston-super-Mare become a major town in the area, to the point that it now boasts a population of over 70,000 people. Situated on the coast next to the Bristol Channel, this attractive town enjoys a fabulous setting that makes it very popular with holidaymakers seeking a picturesque and pretty location, and the presence of the Grand Pier adds to the ambience of this typical English seaside town.

Curiously, one of the most popular attractions in Weston-super-Mare is the Helicopter Museum from which pleasure rides in a helicopter can be made, and there are many good shops and excellent places to eat and drink within what is a very pleasant and attractive town.

Seaquarium, Marine Parade, Weston-Super-Mare BS23 1BE (01934) 641603
Opened in 1995, Weston-Super-Mare’s Seaquarium preserves aquatic life from several different regions of the world, including the Amazon, Pacific Ocean and Britain’s own shores.
Venomous fish such as the Stonefish and Pufferfish swim together with Moray eels and Piranhas, while visitors can watch from the safety of an underwater tunnel.

Helicopter Museum, Locking Moor Road, Weston-Super-Mare BS24 8PP (01934) 635227
Billed as the ‘world’s largest dedicated helicopter museum’, the Helicopter Museum in Weston-Super-Mare was established in 1958. However, it wasn’t until 1988 that the museum really ‘took off’, when Westland Helicopters agreed the lease for the current site.
Now exhibiting, among others, two helicopters from the Queen’s Flight plus the world’s fastest helicopter; the Helicopter Museum has become an award-winning, all-weather attraction.
