Welcome to Burnham and Berrow
Burnham-On-Sea is almost in the middle of Somerset’s stretch of coast and close to the mouth of the tidal river Parrett. It is at the southern end of what is the second longest strip of sand in Europe and boasts several beaches.
As with so many of the UK’s seaside resorts, Burnham blossomed during Victorian times and many of its finest buildings date from that time. Today it has everything you would expect from such a resort: campsites, candyfloss, donkey rides and tea shops.
As a thriving seaside town Burnham houses it's own theatre, gardens, bi-annual food and drink festival and busy calendar of events throughout the year for residents and visitors alike. Disused claypits have been turned into the 42-acre Apex Park which is enjoyed as a space for picnics, games and wildlife watching.
Life at Burnham and Berrow
Burnham and Berrow provides access to some of the best Schools, Colleges and Universities in the country - Bath University is currently ranked 6th in the UK by the Guardian University guide, whilst Bristol University is amongst the top 5% of global Universities according to the QS World University Rankings 2019.
Whatever you're into you'll find it in spades in and around Burnham-on-Sea. Take the family to the beach, enjoy a walk to the Fort at Brean Down or have fun at the leisure park.
Enjoy a round of golf at the local Championship course in Burnham-on-Sea. Go sailing or gig rowing from the local Sailing & Yacht Club.
For peace and tranquillity visit the Quantock Hills or Crooks Peak on The Mendips - both are wonderful places to walk or mountain bike and are designated areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. For something more lively you're ideally placed for the legendary Glastonbury festival and Burnham-on-Sea is just 5 minutes from the M5 with Bristol, Taunton, Cardiff and Exeter all a short way off.
Burnham-on-Sea really does have it all! They don't call Somerset "The Jewel of the South West" for nothing.
