Minehead


Minehead beach - Somerset Coast Festival polaroid image

Minehead offers beaches to explore, a fishing quarter and an historic harbour. There’s a 14th Century church on the hill and the much-photographed historic Church Steps. Take a walk down the tree-lined Avenue and visit the selection of tea rooms, pubs and independent shops in the town centre.

Grab yourself a bike or get out on the water for some paddleboarding or kayaking. Or just take a seat and watch the world go by in the flower-filled Blenheim Gardens or on the seafront.

It’s also an ideal base to explore the surrounding historic villages and beautiful countryside, including Exmoor National Park.
