Want to take the family out but short of funds? Here are 5 things you can do in Clevedon for free
Buggy friendly, beautiful and completely free, Poet’s Walk is one of England’s prettiest walks and has inspired writers for centuries. Your children probably won’t want to compose any verse, but they will want to climb the real, live Lookout Tower. They’ll also enjoy spotting birds and wildlife in the nature reserve, while the broad sea walls, safe paths, wood stairs and bits of beach to play on along the way are irresistible.
Salthouse Fields Skatepark
Situated on the seafront Salthouse Fields Skatepark might not be the most challenging, but it’s good for beginners and fine for practising. It has a couple of quarter pipes, box with grind rail on the side, transfer ramp, flatbank and grind box and there are plenty of boarders, BMX riders and scooters about to compete with.
