Project Coach

Project Coach was started in 2016 by Burnham-on-Sea Chamber of Trade and BIARS with the backing of local businesses, Burnham and Highbridge Town Council, Sedgemoor District Council and the Hinkley Tourism Action Partnership (HTAP).

The project encourages coach companies to visit Burnham, thereby attracting more visitors into town centre shops, cafes and pubs. The project has led to Burnham receiving several accolades at the National Coach Tourism Awards.
