Let's practise in Weston-super-Mare

Where? In Somerset, just off junction 22 of the M5 and within easy reach of the M4. Excellent transport links to the South-West and Midlands.

And? Weston-super-Mare is one of the original seaside towns and is surrounded by grand Victorian architecture and landscaping.

Work? Weston is part of North Somerset PCT. There are 14 surgeries in Weston. The two largest are the Milton Surgery, with five GPs, and the Riverbank Medical Centre, with four GPs.

Homes? An average four-bedroomed property close to Weston town centre will be £234,585. Neighbouring areas such as Worle are cheaper at around £185,000 for the same.

Schools? Weston College consistently achieves exam pass rates above the national average. Priory and Broadoak are the two best state schools, while Churchill is one of the West Country's leading state schools.

Leisure? Weston's Grand Pier is the main attraction, particularly in the summer when visitors can take a ride on a donkey and enjoy the fairground attractions. The Winter Gardens and Sea Life Centre are also popular.

Famous residents? Actor John Cleese, Jeffrey Archer and the late Jill Dando.

Anything else? An annual Illuminated Carnival in November, featuring floats and street entertainment. Also the cover to Oasis's Roll With It single was shot on the pier.
