Weston-Super-Mare is situated in a sheltered bay at the foot of the Mendip Hills with views across the Bristol Channel to South Wales.

Miles of golden sandy beaches, the flagship grand pier, the legendary playhouse theatre, iconic donkeys, a bustling high street and independent shopping, all make it a real cosmopolitan town.

Monday: We depart the Travel Centre this morning and make our way to Weston-super-Mare with a stop en route.

Tuesday: This morning we visit Bishops Lydeard for a journey on the West Somerset Railway, a 20-mile heritage railway running to Minehead.

Wednesday: Today we visit The Bishop’s Palace & Gardens, home to the Bishops of Bath and Wells for over 800 years. This stunning medieval palace, along with its 14 acres of RHS partner gardens, is a joy to visit.  Surrounded by a breath-taking moat, visitors can cross a flagstone drawbridge, walk under the portcullis and experience a true hidden gem in the heart of the City of Wells. As described by an American visitor 130 years ago, this is a ‘palace of enchantment’. After, there will be some free time to enjoy Wells.

Thursday: Today is your free day in resort to explore as you choose.

Friday: We bid a fond farewell to the hotel staff as we head back this morning to Hugglescote.
