Clevedon a Victorian seaside town
Clevedon is a beautiful Victorian seaside resort overlooking the Severn Estuary, in North Somerset.
Popular features include the grade 1 listed Clevedon Pier, Clevedon sea front with pebbled beaches, a marine lake and ornamental gardens all within a 10 minute walk of each other. There is a selection of stylish cafes and restaurants situated next to the Pier, to sit back and take in the fantastic scenery.
Clevedon is a beautiful spot all year round for taking a stroll along the promenade, overlooking the beach, enjoying fish and chips or an ice-cream in the summer. The town is also home to the Curzon cinema which is the world’s oldest purpose built cinema which is still in working order. This is a unique experience which will truly take you back in time.
Hill Road offers a selection of unique, locally owned, specialist shops for an afternoon of tea and browsing the shops.
For walkers there are some fantastic routes, including Poets’ Walk, for a hillside walk or picnic with sea views.
Clevedon has been the setting for several well-known series and films: Broadchurch featured the pretty shop fronts, well-kept awnings and neat pavements of Hill Road as well as Broadchurch’s parish church which is Clevedon’s St. Andrew’s Church. You’ll find this beautiful 12th century church at the end of Old Church Road overlooking the Bristol Channel. We can’t promise any drama for your visit but Clevedon is great for specialist shopping and afternoon tea.
