Visitor Site Map

Group Visits

We love to have groups of all sizes visiting Weston Museum, but we would politely ask groups over 10 to let us know in advance if you are planning a visit.

We often get busy during term time and in half term so a quick call will enable us to let you know what we’ve got coming up so you can best plan your visit. 

We also offer set-priced packages for certain groups (i.e. school groups, residential home visits, and even community groups such as Scouts, Brownies, Guides etc.) that can be organised in advance. Some groups also prefer to hire our hireable spaces or reserve spaces in the café, and this can all be arranged with notice. 

Car parking – There is on-street meter parking around the Museum. The closest car park is the Sovereign Centre.

Cycling  – There is one bike rack outside the Museum.

Train – The train station is a 10min walk from the Museum. – Cross the road so the Tesco is behind you. Head down Alfend street which is almost opposite Tesco, then take a left onto Burlington Street and you’ll see the Museum.

Bus – There are buses that serve the local area for more information and a time table click HERE

Walking from the Pier – This walk will take 7mins. Head down Regents Street which is directly opposite the Pier. Once you see the bright yellow chicken mural start heading left down Meadow Street. You’ll then take the 4th left onto Orchard Street. Then look to your right for Burlington Street and you’ll see us.

Disabled Access

Weston Museum is working towards being as accessible as possible. There is a lift for wheelchair users and those who cannot manage stairs to access the main upper floor galleries. Due to the nature of Clara’s Cottage being built in 1865, this part of the museum is unfortunately not completely accessible to wheelchair users due to narrow corridors and a staircase. For more information, head to our page on accessibility.

Clara’s Café

Clara’s Café offers a good range of delicious food & drink. From our homemade cakes and loose leaf tea to our varied light lunch options, you’ll be sure to find something you love! Opening times for the cafe are Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 – 15:00. For more information, please visit Clara’s Café page

Gift Shop

Our gift shop is home to a variety of local suppliers, who each create something unique and handcrafted. We love to support local crafters, authors and producers, as it helps support Weston’s local economy. For more information on our shop, please visit the shop page.

Clara’s Cottage

Step back in time as you enter Clara’s Cottage. A traditional late Victorian home showcasing the history of Clara Payne, whose family lived there for many decades.
