Weston-super-Mare Seafront

Weston and surrounding areas are studded with fascinating historic buildings to visit - castle, seafront, and town-wide.

Banwell Castle

Of course, there are many castles on the North side of the Severn Estuary, in Wales, but somewhat fewer on the Weston side. One such castle is Banwell Castle - a grade II listed landmark building, still lived in but also open for visitors to stroll round the 25-acre grounds, gardens, and garden centre. In addition to their cream teas they also offer a restaurant, a collection of teddy bears and facilities for weddings. It has been owned by the Bishop of Bath & Wells 250 years ago, and by the Parsons today. They bought the main house from having lived and worked on the estate since 1969.

Weston's Grade II listed building, the Odeon Cinema is of art deco style and amazingly still has in place its Compton organ - the only one of its type outside London. Amongst Weston's other listed buildings are many family homes, restaurants, pubs, churches, the clock tower, Knightstone Pavilion and Opera House, the Lifeboat House and Slipway, jetties and piers (including of course, the recently refurbished Grand Pier), and even public toilets, windmill remains and a bandstand!
