One of the most sought after castles in England, is the majestic Walton Castle.
It is situated in the unspoiled seaside town of Clevedon, a Victorian town overlooking the estuary of the River Severn, the longest river in Great Britain.
Walton Castle is a short drive away from Clevedon Town, and only a half hour walk, which would be a delight for those who love walking, as it offer some of the most beautiful scenic surroundings.
The town is situated on the Bristol Channel coast, offering coastal walks along the shoreline.
One of the must-visit attractions, is the Clevedon Pier. Completed in 1869, it is one of the most important Victorian piers in the country, and it's recognised as one of the finest in the country and a national monument. It is always open to those who want to take a walk and admire the views.
Just like the castle, the pier is a 'Graded' listed construction, which means it may not be demolished, extended, or altered without special permission from the local planning authority.
Clevedon Court is another great attraction. It's one of the oldest manor houses in England, dating from the 14th century. It incorporates parts of a 13th century tower and great hall.
In Clevedon you can also find the oldest purpose built cinema in the world. Opened on 20 April 1912 by Victor Cox, it is still in working order.
Clevedon is an ideal place to visit if you are looking for something authentic and historical.
But out of all these attractions, the main one would have to be Walton Castle. Can you imagine staying at such a beautiful place and be able to experience something truly historical? Not only while you're staying at the castle, but when you step out and visit the the local town. Truly amazing...
