Brean Down

Brean Down


Habitat: Limestone headland with thorn scrub and trees, cliffs, pasture, sandy beach, salt marsh, estuary and mudflats

ST296585, TA8 2RS


  • Directions

    From Burnham-on-Sea head north through Berrow and Brean; the road ends at the Down. There are two P + D car parks – a National Trust one and one associated with the Bird Garden (captive parrots etc.).

  • Accessibility

    The old road up the Down is tarmac but steep, so not very suitable for wheelchairs or those with stamina issues. The bottom track is wide, flat and even, providing access to one of the best migrant spots and views over the estuary. Two cafés and toilets by car parks.
