The councillors and staff at the Town Council wish all our residents a very merry Christmas!

Marine Cove Gardens

As you walk along the esplanade you will pass the enclosed Marine Cove Gardens, hidden behind high stonewalls next to the leaning Church of St Andrews. The Green Flag awarded garden was built in 1927 and restored with a Heritage Lottery Grant in 2011.  There is a pergola, cherub fountain, lion head pool, shelters and seating.  The garden is an ideal sheltered spot for a picnic next to the central feature Art Deco style fishpond.

Manor Gardens

If you visit Burnham-on-Sea during late Spring and early Summer make sure you check the events calendar for one of the free, volunteer led music events in Manor Gardens. The Gardens are situated on the junction of Love Lane and Berrow Road, Burnham-on-Sea and are available to hire from Sedgemoor District Council.

The Gardens feature a formal bandstand, planted areas, play area, tennis courts and seating. The events held here showcase many local artists and bands. Bring a picnic and a blanket and enjoy an afternoon of music and entertainment within a short distance of the town centre.
