On the coast of the Bristol Channel lies the Somerset seaside resort town of Weston Super Mare, home to over 70,000 residents.
Famous for its expansive sandy beach, the town has been popular with holiday-makers since the late nineteenth century when Isambard Kingdom Brunel resided in Weston Super Mare to help oversee the construction of the local mainline railway. To this day the town is a haven for visitors, with the beach packed with sun-worshippers from all around the surrounding region every summer.
Along the seafront is a wide promenade which offers many traditional seaside attractions such as gift shops and amusement arcades, not to mention several especially fine fish and chip shops.
There are also three piers along the length of the beach, one of which is now disused but set for renovation, but the other two are both major tourist draws in their own right.
