Nice evening beach stroll

Hi,

Visiting Bristol for the weekend from Manchester. Driving down in the morning and visiting Cheddar Gorge in the afternoon and thought it would be nice to see the sea around tea time. Does anyone have any suggestions of a nice place to go to? I thought Weston Super Mare. Also any suggestions of a nice place to eat out?

Thanks

You will have to hope that the tide is in - for much of the time you can only see the muddy estuary in this area.

The tidal situation is the same all along this part of the coast. You can probably look up the tide timetable somewhere - but if it is out, the sea will be in the distance only I'm afraid.

Walkingwith, could be right, here is the tide times for Weston Super Mare. It will be about the same all along the coast

tidetimes.org.uk/weston-super-mare-tide-times

The tide is in for an hour or so with an hour either side when It's pretty much in.

Still nice & sandy, lots of fresh air or go on a walk on the grass above the beach at either end of the public beach. There is the new pier too, icecream, candyfloss & the like. A good way to balance out the gorge.

The grassy part sounds nice.... is it fairly straight forward to get to?

Pop 'weston super mare beach' into google then select Images. You can see the area in some of these.

I would have put a link but my computer is playing up at the mo.

Hi, a walk along the sea front was lovely today. After yesterdays rain, you could see the North Devon and South Wales coast. The donkeys were waiting for their small passangers, whilst others were building sand castles on the beach.

Lovely
