MINEHEAD’S Observation Wheel will be returning to the seafront soon. 

Minehead Events Group (MEG) has announced that the wheel will be back in place from May 25 until June 18.

Tickets will cost £5 per adult and £4 for those under 1.4m tall. A family ticket will be available for £15.

Karen Mills, spokesman for MEG, said: “The group and the operator considered this a great success back in 2016 in drawing visitors and residents to have another reason to enjoy the esplanade, with the added bonus of some excellent views of both Minehead and further afield to Exmoor and the Quantocks.

“We were very pleased that the operator approached the Minehead Events Group to ask to make a return visit to Minehead and that on this occasion the attraction will be cost neutral.

“The volunteers of the group work to hold attractions that can enhance the offer of what is already available in Minehead and West Somerset.”
