Minehead is the largest town in the District of West Somerset and is one of West Somerset's busiest holiday resorts. Minehead has good links with the existing highway network, is strategically accessed from the A39 which is the primary road and is located at the southern edge of the town.

Minehead benefits geographically due to its close proximity to the Exmoor National Park and boasts a number of tourist attractions such as: the large Butlins holiday complex located within the town, the West Somerset Steam Railway and the sandy beach.

Additionally Blenheim Gardens in the centre of the town provides a popular attraction for tourists and is the venue for regular band concerts during the summer.

Other attractions include sea cruises, the seafront and other entertainment centres. The South West Coastal Path starts along the seafront and there are many good walks from the town. The town is surrounded inland by the Exmoor National Park, and in fact, the town is often referred to as "The Gateway to Exmoor".
