Fab to hear about its return. Such a lovely little seaside show (and usually one or two really rare gems of helicopters parked on the lawn!)

You’ll need a telescope to see it!

Hi all - I'm going to go to this one for the first time, are there any decent spots with a bit of elevation/alternative viewpoints (like Dawlish used to be!).

The website is pretty broken, but it looks like a decent enough day out at the seaside. I plan on driving to Taunton and getting the train in.

Cheers, Jake.

Yep, and it's better for the light as well. But don't expect to walk there from a station! You'll have to drive and park up, probably at the National Trust car park.

Don’t expect to get particularly close to the action at Brean Down…..Dawlish it is not!

Remember when we went to Payerne on that Wednesday?

I did think that might be the case, but thank you all regardless. I'll likely have the partner in tow so it might be an ice cream and crowd centre affair anyway. If she doesn't come along I'll drive and get a spot up there.

Dawlish was fantastic, wasn't it?
