About Weston-super-Mare

The Beach, Weston-super-Mare

Weston-super-Mare (also referred to as Weston locally) is a popular seaside destination located on the Bristol Channel coast, 18 miles south west of Bristol, between Worlebury Hill and Bleadon Hill. The town’s attractions include the long and wide sandy beach created through the tidal range of the Bristol Channel, the newly opened Wheel of Weston and the town’s most famous landmark, the Grand Pier.

The pavilion at the end of the Grand Pier was completely destroyed by a fire in 2008 but work to rebuild the pavilion began in 2009 and the pier is has now re-opened.

The “T4 OnThe Beach” concert, hosted annually by Channel 4’s youth programme T4, is a recent addition to the town’s calendar of events and Weston-super-Mare is twinned with the town of Hildesheim in Germany.
