The walk across the Down is spectacular we could see both Weston and Bridgwater bays.

There was one very bad point which spoilt our day which I think dog owners should know about.... More

Well worth a visit. The walk across the Down is spectacular with views of both Weston and Bridgwater bays. The fort itself is now owned by the National Trust, and free to enter. However there is a fee for parking your car in the Car Park.

I haven't to Brean in years. The last time I went it was in peak season and this is why I never came back! I was pleasantly surprised by such a quiet and lovely beach. We had a walk up and then had some food in the café. Lovely café, warm and welcoming staff. The café was very quiet but... More

To clear the cobwebs this is a fantastic walk which took an average waller 1hr and a half to walk up and to the fort.

This is a lovely place to come for a walk anytime of the year.Put on those walking boots and warm coats and head either to walk along the beach(nice for dogs but remember the mudflats) or climb the many steep steps to the top and head for the Fort.You can take a gentle but still steep climb a bit further...

Brean Down has always been a part of me, from a young age I remember clambering up the steep never ending steps, taking a breather with breathless walkers and feeling triumphant to make it to the top. Turning around at the top of the last step to take in the view. Looking out towards Steep Holm & Flat Holm I... More
