Things to do

Jutting out beyond the Victorian town and pebbled beach elegantly sits Clevedon Pier, the only Grade 1 listed pier in England. Almost 150 years old, it used to receive paddle steamer passengers from Devon and Wales and now features a shop, award-winning restaurant and visitor centre as well as holding a host of events throughout the year. 

Whether you choose to take a stroll along the promenade whilst tucking into fish and chips or diving into Marine Lake for a swim, Clevedon is a beautiful spot in every season. Opened in 1929, the Marine Lake is now a training location for long distance swimmers, a safe swimming spot for children and a great place for watersports and crabbing. 

Next to the Marine Lake you’ll find the Salthouse Field with a miniature railway, a nearby mini-golf centre and plenty of family-themed activities taking place over the summer months. Walkers are spoilt for choice with numerous routes on offer: retrace the steps of famous poets such as Tennyson and Coleridge on the clifftop Poets’ Walk, a great place to reimagine history and take in picture-postcard views. Check for ideas.

Clevedon’s charming scenery can be appreciated from an assortment of cafés and restaurants next to Clevedon Pier. Nearby you’ll find Hill Road, offering a range of local independent shops, The Triangle, home to high street brands, and the monthly Clevedon Sunday Market, where you’ll grab a great bargain. 

Step back in time by visiting the Curzon Clevedon Cinema, the oldest purpose-built cinema in the world still in working order. The nearby 14th-century manor house, Clevedon Court, has an astonishing medieval core, stunning listed gardens and Eltonware pottery and Nailsea glass on display. This National Trust manor is available to visit between April-September.
