Weston-super-Mare is a Somerset seaside resort on the Bristol Channel coast that retains much of its Victorian history.

Weston is a great gateway to a holiday in Somerset with excellent transport links to other areas of the coast and Exmoor, but you don't have to go far as it has miles of sandy beaches and the traditional seaside pier and donkey rides.

Partly owing to the large tidal range in the Bristol Channel, the low tide mark in Weston Bay is about 1.6 km (1 mile) from the seafront. Although the beach itself is sandy, low tide uncovers areas of mud. Just to the north of the town is Sand Point, a peninsula which marks the lower limit of the Severn Estuary and the start of the Bristol Channel. It is also the site of the Middle Hope biological and geological Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
