The Winter Gardens, Royal Parade, Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset, BS23 1AJ
The Winter Gardens had its doors first opened to the public on 14th July 1927 by Earnest Palmer, Deputy Chairman of the Great Western Railway. It became the focal point of the community who for many years dined, danced and socialised there. In 1950, the magnificent sea facing columns were filled in to provide space for a café area that is still in existence today and lights were installed on the Dome as part of the sea-front illumination.
In 1989 The Winter Gardens closed for a multi-million pound development. A complete refurbishment and extension into the new Town Square Gardens transformed the building into the one it is today. Whilst still retaining the classic 1920’s grandeur, the venue now boasts an extensive modern Conference and Entertainment facility.
