Camping and glamping in Weston-super-Mare

Weston-super-Mare probably ranks as Somerset's best-known seaside resort. With donkey rides on the beach, adventure golf, amusements and ice creams the town offers the opportunity for good old-fashioned British holiday fun. Whether it's the family-friendly attractions, the salty-air and sea or the retro appeal that's tempting you there, camping and glamping offer great ways to stay in this part of the south-west. Pitch up near Weston-super-Mare and you can choose between days spent on the sands and days sightseeing further afield in Somerset. Weston (as it's known locally) is well-located in the north of Somerset if you want to visit Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury, Wells or Bristol, during your holiday here. With the rural landscapes of the Mendip Hills and Somerset Levels inland, there are plenty of camping and glamping sites near Weston-super-Mare that have caught the attention of our travel experts from classic campsites to glamping sites with yurts, shepherd's huts and bell tents on offer.

Things to do in Weston-super-Mare

It's no surprise that most of the sights and attractions in Weston-super-Mare are clustered around the coast. Spend a day, or a week, on the beach during your Weston-super-Mare camping holiday and you can ride a donkey on the sands, enjoy theme park rides on the pier, and build sandcastles on the beach. There's also a SeaQuarium, adventure golf and a 40-metre ferris wheel among the amusements of the seafront. You can discover the roots of the resort with a trip to the Weston Museum and see the Victorian architecture by strolling along the prom. For a wilder walk, head south of town to Brean Down where a 1.5-mile headland juts out in to the Bristol Channel offering spectacular views, birdwatching and a special habitat for wildlife.

Inland, it's around 20 miles to the underground attractions at Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge and not much further to England's smallest city, Wells, with its disproportionately large cathedral. Alternative and quirky Bristol has plenty of attractions if you fancy a day in the city during your camping and Glamping Holiday and is well within an hour's drive.


With its promenade, seaside hotels and Grand Peir, Wester-super-Mare (or just 'Western') in Somerset has a bucket-and-spade atmosphere but still very much keeps up with the times. Green spaces, National Trust sites and the nearby Mendip Hills, provide more outdoor fun for campers, with plenty of good campsites nearby.
