Clevedon Pier and Heritage Centre

Reviewed By Sue W

How ridiculous is it to spend £5.50 for 2 to get on the pier and then have to spend even more to check out the new cafe. I have lived in the area for over 20 years and have spent many a pleasurable afternoon walking along the pier but not any more. The person on the desk was extremely rude and snooty. Not a very good impression for visitors. The pier may be Grade 1 listed but the staff certainly need to be more polite.

Lovers Walk Clevedon

Reviewed By Peter B - Somerset, United Kingdom

This coastal path starts at the top of the hill on Marine Parade and continues upstream by the River Severn for six miles (10kms) to Portishead Lake Gardens. It is undulating and runs through Redcliff Bay which is a National Trust reserve. The views across, up and down the river are delightful and vary from Rocky and Sandy bays, to river cliffs, sweeping rural views, shady forest glades and glimpses of the Severn crossings and the Brecon beacons. Detours can include Walton Castle (adjacent to Clevedon golf club) and Walton woods close to Walton in Gordan. We usually finish our walk at the Windmill pub then suitably refreshed take the bus back to Clevedon.

Alexandra Gardens

Reviewed By cherriesfan_9 - Cheltenham, United Kingdom

Alexandra Gardens are a little anonymous, but deserves a bit more attention. Certainly well used by the Clevedon locals, this is a park in two quite distinct parts. The upper Gardens with its entrance off of Hill Road, is somewhat predictably a pine tree woodland sloping down towards the more formal Gardens, with mature trees, impressive floral displays and a gazebo.
Good picnic spot, and worth visiting.

Clevedon Clock Tower

Reviewed By cherriesfan_9 - Cheltenham, United Kingdom

Now surrounded by traffic on three sides, Clevedon's Clock Tower is a 1898 commerative piece (Queen Victoria Diamond Jubliee) paid for by local dignitary Lord Elton.
Quite an attractive piece with its pottery tiles and decorative clock face.
Missing it would not spoil your visit to Somerset, but it is nice to get a reminder of the past.
