Last weekend we finally got a chance to pay the pretty North Somerset town of Clevedon a visit. We've long-admired the town after the wonderful Midgley Green opened its doors a year ago, so despite the dreary grey day we ventured out and took in the sights. Here's what we found.
1. Clevedon Pier
Starting with arguably Clevedon's biggest tourist attraction, it's Victorian pier really is quite special. Built in 1860, it's 312 metres long and stretches out over the choppy estuary of the Severn river. There's a cafe at each end and some breathtaking photo opportunities. Plus there's a museum to boot. Not bad for the £3.30 entrance fee.

2. Midgley Green
The main reason for our visit. Seamus and Katherine have curated a beautiful mix of wares from designers and artists in a truly gorgeous shop on Alexandra Road (which is literally 5 mins walk from the Pier). Well worth a visit to discover wares from small-batch makers who produce playful, design led pieces for your home.

3. 67 Barista Barber
The flat white has reached the north Somerset border! This super cool space - part cafe and part barbers - offers great coffee, tea and cake alongside a relaxed gents barbers. They host music nights and events too, so it's worth checking out the Facebook or Instagram for the latest news before you visit.
