26 Jul 2023

As the summer holidays begin, families in the South West are eager to discover the perfect day trip destination that offers both enjoyment and enrichment, even despite some drizzly weather. Brean, on the Somerset coast, offers family the opportunity to have fun and make memories – all whilst not breaking the bank.
The Somerset coastal village has recently garnered attention for its exceptional walking experience along Brean Down, being hailed as one of the best walks in the UK in a study by a national newspaper. The 7-mile stretch of sand and dunes that make up Brean beach makes it part of one of the longest stretches of sand in Europe that is dog friendly all year round. It also makes the perfect setting for sandcastle building and for watching the varied wildlife and stunning sunsets. 
As well as the beach areas, Brean offers impressive family-friendly attractions, including Brean Splash which boats a 25m heated six-lane swimming pool, a ‘Baby Pool’, Indoor Splash Zone, waterslides and more.
For those seeking a blend of excitement and amusement, Brean Leisure Park is a vibrant amusement park packed with a wide range of rides, games, and entertainment options that cater to all ages. From exhilarating roller coasters to traditional fairground games, Brean Leisure Park guarantees a day full of laughter and shared experiences.
Giles Adams from Visit Somerset has emphasised the popularity of the area.
"We are thrilled that Brean has been recognised for the stunning walk along Brean Down and that it continues to provide top-notch facilities and attractions that cater to families seeking adventure, education, and relaxation. There is real value and enjoyment to be experienced on our coast and Brean is the perfect example of that.”
Just a short drive from Junction 22 from the M5 motorway, nestled on the North Somerset coast between Weston Super Mare and Burnham on Sea, Brean is conveniently located within easy reach of Taunton, Bristol, South Wales and the Midlands.
Whatever the weather, head to Brean this Summer and enjoy a lovely traditional day out for the whole family…including the dog!
