The most iconic sight in Clevedon has to be its beautiful pier – Pier of the Year in 2021! It was opened in 1869 and is the only Grade 1 listed pier in the UK. It has a small museum as well as a bijou restaurant and take away service – The Glass Box, where you can enjoy fish and chips with a unique view of the estuary. A short stroll from the pier, you’ll find the Marine Lake – the world’s largest seawater infinity pool, built in 1929. Behind the lake you’ll discover Salthouse Fields – formerly a site for salt panning, it is now home to a play park, Bowls Club, tennis courts and working model railway. For indoor entertainment the community-run Curzon Cinema and Arts Centre is a must – it’s one of the oldest continuously running cinemas in the world and offers films as well comedy nights and other events.
