Clevedon and local transport
While BGS students are usually focused on studying you might like to know a bit about Clevedon.
Clevedon is an almost unique English seaside town. Because the beaches are stony and muddy rather than sandy it has avoided over-development and the seafront is almost unchanged from Victorian times. The pier is world famous! If you visit in the summer you might even take a swim in the Marine Lake - the open air swimming pool close to our home. Some brave people swim there all year round.
Our house is in a central location with shops, supermarkets, the restaurants and cafes in the town centre, Hill Road shopping area and the seafront all within a short stroll from the front door. There are many walks and opportunities to run or cycle (some guests have brought their bikes with them!). There are three good seafront pubs close by and we are happy to give more detailed reviews.
We also have the fabulous Curzon community cinema, just five minutes from our front door. This is a lovely unchanged cinema, which screens a great variety of films and sometimes has a volunteer playing the original Christie organ.
There is a helicopter museum at Weston Super Mare, and an air display in Weston in the summer.
Although there is no train station in Clevedon there are frequent buses to Bristol city centre (it takes about 30 minutes), Portishead and Weston Super Mare. The nearest train station is at Yatton, about four miles from Clevedon. We are also about 30 minutes by car from Bristol airport.
