The Grand Pier
Come rain or shine, The Grand Pier at Weston-Super-Mare offers a fun few hours for the family. It’s got a wonderful British seaside feel, and is perched over a beautiful beach. You won’t have any trouble finding a traditional fish & chip shop by the seaside.

Cheddar Gorge is a picture perfect landmark, both above and below ground. The inland cliffs are a sight to behold, and like Wookey Hole, there are some amazing caves to explore. If you’re feeling energetic then a climb up Jacobs Ladder will offer some spectacular views of the Gorge and beyond.

Longleat Safari Park
No family trip to the South West is complete without a trip to the unforgettable Longleat Safari Park. The safari takes around 2-3 hours, so there’s plenty of time to spend exploring the rest of the grounds, including Longleat House and the Hedge Maze. Longleat is situated just outside of Somerset, so consider a day trip here at the end of your stay.
The mischievous monkeys love collecting loose fitting car parts.. you have been warned!
