Butlins Minehead’s largest attraction (if you didn’t already know!). Swimming complex, amusement park, cinema, you name it, they seem to have it!

West Somerset Railway Fantastic steam railway with masses of special events such as a Thomas the Tank Engine for the kids.

Dunster Castle (Pictured). Incredible old castle with bags of history and even a secret passage that might have been used by a King!

Cleeve Abbey Evidence of monastic life from times past.

Coleridge Cottage Where Coleridge stayed when he wasn’t being interrupted by that pesky Person from Porlock.

Further afield

Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park From otters to lions and of course their dinosaurs, this will charm both the adults as well as the children.

Exmoor Zoo Opened in 1982, the zoo is an ideal family day out. Remember, too, that you can use your Tesco tokens.

Ilfracombe Aquarium Wonderful aquarium taking the visitor from the fish you’d find at the source of a river on the moor, down through the river to the sea and finally around Lundy Island. A great afternoon outing. I took my daughter on a rainy Sunday afternoon and our family had the place to ourselves! She thought it was magical.
