Burnham-on-Sea, Berrow & Brean

A mix of sandy beaches and Somerset Charm

Burnham-on-Sea

Burnham-On-Sea, Berrow and Brean are 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: candyfloss, donkey rides and tea shops.

Burnham may have one of the longest expanses of sand but it also has the shortest pier. What this pier lacks in length, it makes up for in elegance and has survived because of its unusual construction – employing granite in its concrete structure to withstand the waves.

To aid seafarers, a lighthouse was built by the local vicar who used the proceeds from selling it to improve the townscape. A reduced version of this first lighthouse is now a house and its replacement has also been converted to residential use. A third lighthouse was built on stilts on the beach and still functions today.

Burnham is a thriving seaside town with a 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.
