Coach Holidays to Weston-super-Mare
Renowned as one of England’s oldest seaside resorts, Weston-Super-Mare has been a popular tourist destination for British holiday-makers for many years. It is home to a whirlwind of attractions and activities that keep visitors booking coach holidays to Weston-Super-Mare year after year.
The town is situated in a sheltered bay at the foot of the Mendip Hills with views across the Bristol Channel to South Wales. The town has a warming seaside atmosphere, with fish and chip shops, amusements, famous piers and souvenir stores. As attractive as this is, you only need to look beyond the sea front and you will see there is much more to this part of Somerset than meets the eye.

There are many charming Victorian and Edwardian terraces interspersed with colourful parks and gardens providing fascinating walks.
