Weston-Super-Mare & Horse Drawn Canal Cruise
6 Day Coach Holiday
All the fun of the seaside is in store at wonderful Weston with miles of sandy beaches and a level promenade giving stunning views over the Bristol Channel. The resort’s Grand Pier is steeped in Victorian history and exudes old world charm with fairground rides, amusement arcades, a land train, ice cream parlours and a traditional tearoom. Perhaps head to Grove Park where free music concerts sometimes take place at the bandstand. Maybe take a boat trip to Steep Holm Island or uncover local history at the museum. Visit the Winter Gardens Pavilion, get up close to all creatures great and small at SeaQuarium or have fun at Crazy Hills Putting miniature golf course. Don’t miss the Helicopter Museum, the largest of its kind on the planet and where you’ll be amazed by the collection of well preserved historic choppers from around the world and intrigued by the interactive zones.

Your ExcursionsCheddar Gorge & Wells
We begin our day at Cheddar Gorge, an area of outstanding beauty with dramatic cliffs and spectacular stalactite caverns that reveal stories of our prehistoric ancestors. Its Gough’s Cave was home to ‘Cheddar Man’ – Britain’s oldest, complete skeleton, which was discovered in 1903. The cavern also features the largest underground river in the UK. We continue to medieval Wells, home to a magnificent cathedral with a soaring tower, and to the moated Bishop’s Palace & Gardens.
Our treat today is Taunton, county town of Somerset. Perhaps visit the Museum of Somerset, housed in the twelfth century great hall of Somerset Castle, it tells the county’s story from prehistoric times through interactive media and artefacts including Roman coins. This venue is also home to the Somerset Military Museum. Elsewhere, you might like to visit the beautiful St Mary Magdalene Church with its soaring tower, relax in one of the pretty parks or browse the independent boutiques.
Tiverton, Horse Drawn Canal Cruise & Burnham
We journey to the town of Tiverton, home to a fifteenth century church, castle remains and a well-preserved merchant’s house. Look forward to a nostalgic horse-drawn barge trip along the picturesque Grand Western Canal. Afterwards, we continue to quaint Burnham-on-Sea, a former fishing village and now a popular seaside resort with a wide sandy beach and level promenade.
