About Clevedon Chamber of Commerce
“Clevedon is recognised as a picturesque seaside town. Clevedon is best known for its historical Pier, Cinema and Marine Lake, but more recently as a location for Broadchurch, ‘Never let me go’ and One Direction’s 'You & I' music video. There is no doubt that our town is admired by visitors from far and wide.
Many view Clevedon as peaceful and relaxing, with stunning buildings showing off the town’s history.
The business community, however, is anything but calm and quiet. Amongst the Victorian landscape and floral parks is a dynamic and proactive range of businesses, from boutique shops to national internet businesses and a whole lot more between.
Our goal as a chamber is to provide the businesses of Clevedon, contacts, skills and promotional platforms to help them drive their businesses to be as successful as they can be. Furthermore, working with our schools and charities, we can do our bit to keep Clevedon as a place to be proud of for years to come.”
