Celebrating Motorcycling in Weston Super Mare
One of the true wonders of Weston Super Mare is the fact that there are so many things which attract quite a diverse number of visitors to the area. It would be fair to say that one of the biggest of these is the world famous Weston Beach Race, which attracts motorcycle enthusiasts from far and wide every single year.
The Weston Beach Race takes place every October. As the 2019 (37th edition) only takes place on the 18 - 20 October weekend, you might be wondering why we're mentioning it now. Incredibly the event is so popular we are already fully booked for that weekend. This doesn't mean you can't visit us at a different time of the year though as there are plenty of other motorcycle themed events and attractions to enjoy.
For example, the established charity bike event which started back in 2008 is held over 22 nights through the months of May to September. It takes place on the beach lawns in Weston Super Mare on a Thursday evening from 6pm and has all the usual attractions such as bike of the night themed awards ranging from Scooter, Trike, American Power and more, as well as music, hot food and various traders and stalls. All money collected on the evenings is donated to the Poppy Appeal. As we are sure you are aware the Poppy Appeal is a very worth while cause, with many ex-service men and women needing support from the Royal British Legion every year. In 2018 a massive £11,056 was raised and presented to the Poppy Appeal on the final bike night.
Staying at one of the best of guest houses in Weston Super Mare is the way to make sure that those coming for special events are guaranteed to have a fantastic time. We're very proud of the fact that our award winning status makes us a stand out choice for your stay.
