BU4CBE

If you're looking for a great value weekend break by the sea, then this 4-day trip to the original British seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare in North Somerset could be an ideal choice.

With its two-mile long sandy beach, Weston has reinvented itself from its Victorian beginnings. It still offers the traditional favourites like the donkey rides and amusements but it has also undergone a renaissance with new restaurants and attractions, so, even if you have been here before, you might not recognise it from your childhood memories. The impressive Grand Pier, stretching out to sea, is a kaleidoscope of fun, and you'll also find cafes, restaurants and bars to suit every taste and the seafront is conveniently close to the town centre with its many independent shops. The long flat promenade has plenty of benches and seats so you can take a rest whenever you want and milk in the view as you look out across to Wales with the islands of Flat Holm and Steep Holm in between.

For those looking to stay busy, we've packed a lot in but if you just fancy sitting on the pier watching the world go by, then that is absolutely fine too!

You'll stay right in the heart of Weston in the comfortable family-run Royal Grosvenor Hotel, overlooking the sea and the pier and making it easy for you to explore and enjoy this pretty seaside resort at your leisure. If you wish to explore further, we include a day out to the tiny medieval city of Wells, the smallest city in England, and the village of Cheddar with its quaint tearooms, gentle riverside walks and a variety of restaurants and cafes. You can also experience legendary Glastonbury, possibly the quirkiest town in England, steeped in history and myth. Your weekend away will also include entertainment at the hotel on some nights.

An ideal choice for:

* Anyone looking for a great value weekend by the sea
* People who love to have the choice of doing their own thing or joining in with others
* Anyone just looking to switch off and have some fun

Itinerary

Day 1

Join your coach at your convenient pick up point this morning and, with a suitable stop on the way, head to Somerset's favourite seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare and your fantastically located hotel overlooking the sea front and Grand Pier. Take time to settle in and perhaps have a stroll along the prom before enjoying dinner and time to get acquainted with your fellow travellers at the bar, or a wander out to see the lights and fun of Weston at night.

Days 2 & 3

Enjoy your traditional full English breakfasts along with free time in Weston-super-Mare.

This elegant resort grew out of tiny fishing villages 200 years ago. The wonderful sweep of Weston Bay, with views over to Wales and down to Exmoor, is a never-ending source of satisfaction. Miles of broad, flat sandy beach are perfect for everyone. There’s also a host of cafes, pubs, and restaurants where you can sit and watch the world go by. Why not head to the lovely Grand Pier to enjoy the spectacular views of Weston.

Spend all of your time in the resort or join your INCLUDED excursion to Wells and Cheddar, plus a half day visit to Glastonbury. Wells is the smallest City in England, which offers numerous historical marvels such as the famous 14th century Astronomical Clock, The Bishop’s Palace and of course, the outstanding cathedral. Cheddar is a large village situated on the southern edge of the Mendip Hills, famous throughout the world as the origin of Cheddar Cheese, produced here since the twelfth century. Then in Glastonbury, you can explore the Abbey, reputedly the burial place of King Arthur himself, check out the fantastic independent shops or enjoy a drink or bite to eat in one of the many welcoming cafes and pubs. Make sure you leave room for dinner!

Return each afternoon before enjoying drinks from the cosy bar and dinner while you share your memories from the day, with entertainment also provided on some evenings.

Day 4

It is sadly time to say farewell to Weston and Somerset today. After a filling breakfast and a leisurely start, we will leave Weston and head homewards with time to relax on board and a suitable stop on the way.

Weston-super-Mare

INCLUDED Visitor DestinationWeston-super-Mare, nestled on the Somerset coast and embraced by Weston Bay’s 2 mile long sandy beach has reinvented itself from its beginnings in Victorian history. Few towns can say that their beachfront is so close to the town centre, is mostly on the level without steep walkways and can offer so much to do, whatever the weather. The town centre's independent shops, cafes and bars are nestled within a few steps. 

Well known for traditional donkey rides, the amusements and rides of the Grand Pier, ice-cream on the beach and fish & chips, there is so much more to offer as well! There’s two theatres, two cinemas, a free museum and a vast range of traditional and international cuisine – you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the amount of things to do.

As well as its spectacular Gothic cathedral Wells boasts the Bishop's Palace and Vicars' Close, said to be the oldest residential street in Europe.

Glastonbury

INCLUDED Visitor DestinationHistoric Glastonbury is a quirky, unique place to visit, best-known for its nearby annual music festival. A compact town, everything worth seeing is within walking distance and one of the most refreshing aspects of Glastonbury is that it is not over commercialised. The Abbey, dating from 670 AD is now an atmospheric ruin, and a visit is still very worthwhile. Prior to that time, the town existed as a Celtic religious centre. According to legend, 2000 years ago Joseph of Arimathea is said to have brought the young Jesus here. A 10-minute walk from the High Street will take you past Chalice Well to the foot of the famous mystical Glastonbury Tor. You can also enoy the 'new age' side to the town, with mystic shops and free spirits who have made Glastonbury their home. It is a legendary place that weaves its way through everything you experience here.
