Dig out your sunhat, grab a deck chair, buy a carrot for the donkey and take a trip to Weston-Super-Mare; Britains original seaside town and Somerset's best known holiday resort. It's a cracker.
The biggest attraction here for families is the beach. One of the UK's longest sandy stretches, this place offers the best of British seaside fun; stalls selling ice cream and fish and chips, donkey rides, piles of sandcastle building potential, water sports, souvenir shops, a long promenade and of course, an iconic pier. On a clear day, take a trip on the 131 foot high observation wheel to see stunning views over the Bristol Chanel to South Wales.
Other family friendly attractions include the worlds largest Helicopter Museum, the Water Adventure play park and Pirate Adventureland golf. Weston-Super-Mare also has a reputation for some rather unique festivals. The Sand Sculpture festival - which is visited by thousands every year - showcases fantastic larger-than-life sandy creations by various artists. The Balloons on the Beach festival is also a sight to behold - a huge mass of hot air balloons ascending from the beach, every shape and colour imaginable.
Just outside the town are two great wildlife parks - Puxton Park and Court Farm; both of which can be visited at any time of year.
This really is a fabulous family holiday resort - at any time of year!
