Population – Minehead’s population had reached 12,000 at the time of the 2011 census.
Transport – 1 hour from the M5, the main route to Minehead is particularly stunning but not fast. With scarce areas of dual carriageway this isn’t a place drivers rush to, but with such great scenery there really is no hurry. Minehead currently doesn’t have a mainline train station (although there is a campaign to restore a former line)

While today Minehead is a well-loved holiday resort, it was once an important trading port. It has a well-kept high street with a number of national stores, good supermarkets and a fine selection of independent traders. There are several parks and gardens, a bowling club and a theatre.
Loved by holiday makers, there is certainly no shortage of things to do. The town has a leisure centre, a huge selection of restaurants, and miles of golden sand. Nearby Dunster Castle is a popular spot to visit and there’s also a heritage railway. The small port is still operational with pleasure craft and marine tours. However the coastline is the star of the show and the town marks the start of the South West Coast Path giving access to Exmoor. Day passes are available for the Butlin’s resort with a huge variety of activities from swimming to rock climbing.
If you’re walking Minehead is superb, if you’re in a hurry, not so much. While the routes to and from the town are incredibly picturesque, they are not fast. It takes approximately 1 hour to reach the M5. There is a groundswell of local action to reopen a former rail route but at present the town doesn’t have a train station.
