History

Detailed History

The greater part of Weston-Super-Mare was developed in the late-19th century. The Grand Atlantic Hotel (onto which the westerly houses of Wilton Gardens back) was opened in 1889. Wilton Gardens probably dates from around that time. It is like many squares in Bristol and Bath, and offers the houses additional privacy and seclusion.
