WHY BURNHAM-ON-SEA IS A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE
Whether you’re after a day on the dunes, a cultural experience indoors or a light snack on the esplanade, Burnham-on-Sea can give it to you. This idyllic Somerset spot grew in the Victorian era and continues to attract holidaymakers from the rest of the UK and overseas. Seven miles of beautiful beaches lie between here and Brean, the neighbouring town. They include Berrow Beach, sprinkled with seaweed and driftwood, and Brean Sands on the northern tip.
Residents of Burnham-on-Sea also have plenty of historic cultural venues down the road. You’ll enjoy the Art Deco stylings of the Ritz Cinema, folk jam nights at The Ritz Social Club, and regular musicals at the Princess Theatre & Arts Centre. Independent shops dot the high-street and the pier is a mile and a half long, perfect for afternoon walks. There’s no shortage of pubs and restaurants either.
If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, there’s even more to see and do. Burnham & Berrow Golf Club is a five-minute drive north of the town centre, while the Apex Leisure and Wildlife Park — created for fishing, skating and BMXing — is a few miles south by the River Brue estuary. Children will love life here and families have a range of “Good” or “Outstanding” schools to choose from. Three academies cater for students up to the age of 11, and The King Alfred Secondary School teaches older children in sister market town Highbridge.
