Why live in Weston & Worle? Located just 18 miles South West of Bristol in the county of North Somerset, Weston-super-Mare is a bustling seaside town boasting a wide selection of property options to appeal to a wide range of buyers, whether families, professionals or those seeking a cosy nook in which to retire from the rat race.There is evidence of habitation on this spot of the British coast dating back 2,000 years, but Weston's boom as a popular seaside town began in 1810 when the burgeoning railway network made travel to the coast from the cities easy, and visitors thronged to Weston to enjoy the sea air and beaches.Having recently undergone a multimillion pound rebuild following a fire in 2008, Weston's iconic Grand Pier remains a focal point of the seafront, and is popular with young and old as an entertainment venue and spot to stroll or take in the views across the Severn Estuary. The seafront has also recently benefited from a 34 million enhancement program which has earned numerous awards including the 2011 Street Design Awards and the Royal Town Planning Institute South West Award. Weston's beach plays host to numerous events, including the popular T4 on the Beach music event and the spectacular beach motorcycle race. The town centre, just a minute's walk away from the seafront, offers many of the popular high street retailers as well as a variety of eating places, ranging from cafes to bars and restaurants. Venues including a cinema, the Playhouse Theatre and the Winter Gardens ensure there is plenty of evening entertainment in the centre of town. Sports lovers are well catered for, with golf, football, cricket and rugby facilities all available in or near the town as well as several fitness centres. There is also an extensive network of cycle paths.
