From the moment you arrive at Minehead's historic harbour you are in for a day of discovery. Enjoy the long flat sandy beach- ideal for children to play.
The promenade boasts cafés, bars and shops offering access to the beach and spectacular views across to North Hill.
St Michael’s Church, built in the 14th Century, can be found on the lower slopes of North Hill and can be accessed from the road or the quaint Church Steps.
Just a short stroll from the seafront are Blenheim Gardens, Minehead’s largest park, which opened in 1925. These beautiful gardens are open all year with a bandstand and wide variety of free entertainment during the summer months.
If you have booked for our inclusive steam train ride package then you will also discover the other great attraction of Minehead – the West Somerset Railway – a preserved line re-living the golden age of steam along 18 miles of stunning scenery. Enjoy a great day ashore at Minehead- where the Exmoor coast meets the sea!.
