A seaside town located just eighteen miles from the regional hub of Bristol, Weston Super Mare is situated in the west English county Somerset.
After two piers and a host of hotels sprang up, the town experienced a boom throughout the 19th century, a favourite resort for many of the era’s well-to-do. After something of a slump in the town’s fortunes in the last century, a recent regeneration has led to Weston Super Mare becoming one of Somerset’s most vibrant, thriving communities.
Key attractions in Weston Super Mare include the Grand Pier, featuring a land train, indoor rides and an arcade. Providing spades of nostalgia, it is an ideal place to come and sample such British seaside delights as candy floss, sugar dummies and of course, ice cream.
The Helicopter Museum in Weston (as the locals call it), is one of the best to be found anywhere, featuring more than 80 helicopters and autogyros from around the world. It is based on the south-eastern corner of what was once the Weston Super Mare airport.
From Uphill to Minton to Bournville, Floom’s Weston Super Mare flower delivery covers the entirety of this fun-filled seaside town.
