Favourite Building
  • Too many to mention Hans Price was a cool dude Love the coach houses top montpelia and Walliscotte rd
  • Love the Art Deco building on the High Street currently part occupied by Costa (lotta) Coffee. Look up to see the Twelve Elephants heads looking down on you. I'm sure nobody notices them. Who'd have thought there were elephants in Weston.
  • The Observatory
  • it burnt down
  • my favourite building was the abandoned hotel...... before it burnt down
  • BHS
  • The gasometers, they are just huge awesome structures! Some of the buildings on the boulevard have interesting architecture. The castle at Banwell makes an impression too.
  • mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
  • 5 Milton road, a stone built building - I was born there 62 years ago. Ivans garage was across the road.
  • My favourite building WAS knightstone! Now they have decided to turn it into yet more luxury flats and i am begining to wonder what we have left in this 'victorian' town. I am only 23 and therefore not against modern contemporary developments. However, i feel that we are ruining a victorian town with yet more thin walled, Overpriced flats.
  • Your mums house
  • My house, I feel safe in it.
  • My house obviously!!
  • The Pier.
  • The old pier is lovely but run smething about it and start to give people something to come here for, instead of just drinking. (I wouldnt mind about the drining if there were somewhere good to go).
  • There's a really sweet redbrick apartment building on Beach Road - looks totally out of place, like it should be in the Bronx - nice though.
  • My mates house or the Old Kings Head. Or the shelter up by the Prince Consort Gardens.
  • Ellenborough crescents big georgian terraces <3
  • For most of the population in weston its the JOB CENTRE!!!!
  • No one building is my favourite, ok topshop is a kewl place, but i like my area where i live, North Worle. Its quiet, its pretty, its lack of scum...just lovely! Especially my house too!
  • The CORBIERE hotel, upper church road, great place to take back the ten to two bird you,ve just regrettably picked up in sands disco.
  • All the victorian, stone built houses, (they don't make 'em like they used to)
  • The tec college!
  • Lots of good Victorian stuff, though much of it has been messed about by naff hoteliers and DIY conversions. Terrible plastic window frames appearing everywhere.
  • Yeah, I agree the VW garage is ok, but hardly a asset, and the Sea Life Centre is modern and Senoritas bar looks cool from the outside
  • Railway Station
  • The House my grandad built! Knightstone Island, alot of happy childhood memories, Tropicana.
  • The Book Depository opposite a Grassy Knoll - Dallas
  • Sovreign center
  • The VW Garage is COOL and the best building in Weston by far!
  • urm, tough one this. How about none cause Council don't spend any money here.
  • the VW Garage, recently built on the way in to weston, it is a cool looking garage and much more to come there, I think we will get a showcase style cinema too.
  • the lidils ware house by the motorway when the sum shines on the steel roof u get blinded at 90 miles an hour
  • My Temple.
  • The Bank for obvious reasons.
  • The Old Pier. If only I had won the lottery...
  • Weston College (the contrast against the old buildings-tragic)
  • Burn them all!!!!
  • None - weston is not a spot of architectural excellence!!
  • The soon to be demolished Broadoak building. Simply because it wont be there for much longer.
  • I must say the 5 years I spent in weston where all great times, the old knightstone pool, a wonderful old building with hand carved underground passages. this was a great place to meet the local talent, (if you where a life guard as i was).
