Minehead is a charming Edwardian seaside town located on the beautiful south west coastline at the start of the dramatic South West Coast Path. Home to a large Butlins Holiday Village situated about a mile from the town centre which attracts thousands of visitors a year. Minehead has strong assets and opportunities – its stunning mile–long seafront, pretty harbour, boating heritage combined with the charm of the town, its Edwardian and Victorian architecture, attractive Blenheim Gardens at its heart and the wealth of small independent businesses in the town. The Minehead Business Improvement District (BID) covers the town centre (the retail heart), the seafront, the harbour and some of the out of town retail and tourism organisations on the approach to the town centre. The key objective of the BID is to raise the profile of Minehead as a destination for both retail and tourism, in turn to diversify and increase the footfall, spend and viability of the town for all stakeholders.
