Weston Super Mare: Life in a seaside town is relaxing and rewarding

For many older people, the chance to move away from the cities and towns that they have lived in and worked in for most of their lives can give them the opportunity to discover a new experience and relax in their latter years.

Some of the best places around the country to do this can be in seaside towns, where fresh air, small populations and a real community feeling can make for a fantastic way of life far removed from the stresses of working life.

One area that older Brits might look towards could be discovered when they are on their travels and seeking out property for sale is Weston Super Mare. The Somerset town is located on the Bristol Channel Coast, and with only around 71,000 residents, it will be far quieter and less hectic than many of the bigger settlements around England.

As well as this, the fact the town is just 18 miles from Bristol, it means that there is plenty of access to entertainment, shops and even work for those younger residents who might also fancy making the move to the coast.

Some of the best options in Weston Super Mare come from the fact that the town is located in rural settings. It has its coast, where residents can take the chance to enjoy a summer walk to grab a breath of fresh air, while the town is also surrounded by green areas which make for ideal nature rambles and hikes.

Entertainment is also a key part of the town's culture, largely thanks to the fact it has a tourist feel each summer. The Odeon cinema in the town was first built in 1935 and still retains some of the original spirit, hosting the only old-style organ that is still in existence outside of London.

On top of this, there is also the Playhouse Theatre, where people can have the chance to grab themselves a night of cultural relaxation with a play from one of the local amateur groups or a national touring production.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801576272-ADNFCR
