Wetherbury Village Appearances

This article is official! This means that it is a part of the published Rainbow Magic series.

Wetherbury Village is the village where Kirsty Tate lives with her family.


Wetherbury is described as "pretty village in the middle of the countryside". The stately home, Golden Palace, is in the countryside just outside of Wetherbury. Norwood Palace is also near Wetherbury.

There is a museum, a hotel, a village hall as well as a community hall called the Friendship Hall, and a theatre called the Playhouse Theatre. The Warehouse is where Juanita's music video was filmed.

There are two sweet factories near Wetherbury, The Sweet Factory and Candy Land, where Kirsty's aunt, Harri works. Candy Land is on a hill overlooking the village.

The high street consists of cafés, a post office, shops, the Wetherbury Vet Surgery and a market square. There is also a florist and a Sweet Shop run by Tracey Twist.

Wetherbury has a shopping centre called the New Harmony Mall and an ice rink.

Wetherbury has a lot of open space, with a park, a daffodil hill, a greenhouse, the Butterfly Centre, a farmyard and Strawberry Farm, Bramble Stables and Greenfields Farm close by. There is a hill good for sledging down when it is snowy. Greenwood Forest lies on the edge of the village.

The Wetherbury Docks is where the ship, Ocean Princess, was launched and the village has a train station that can go to London.

Wetherbury is also host to large carnivals, fiestas and funfairs, with a variety of rides and stalls. These carnivals and fairs are called 'Toy Town Funfair' and 'Sunnydays Carnival'.

There are plenty of schools in Wetherbury: Orchard Primary School, Wetherbury College and Wetherbury High. The schools hold sports days and discos as well as the free space of the auditorium.

  • Wetherbury Village is usually shortened to "Wetherbury".
  • Kirsty's house is on a road called Wether Way.
  • Kirsty's house is right next to a corn field.
  • Wetherbury is in the countryside, however, there is a dock which means it is somewhere by the sea. 
  • Kylie's map is the only map that doesn't show Wetherbury, instead it shows the carnival.
  • Wetherbury's first appearance is in Crystal the Snow Fairy.
  • There appears to be a Wetherbury City, shown in Cara the Coding Fairy, however it is unsure if this is a mistake. See Cara the Coding Fairy.
  • 'Wetherbury' in Swedish is 'Våderbyn', which translates as 'Weather Village'.


Wetherbury isn't a real town name, however, it may reference the series that it first appeared in, the Weather Fairies. The suffix '-bury' indicates a fortified place.

Other influences on the name may be Weatherbury, a fictional town (based on Puddletown in West Dorset, UK) created by Victorian author Thomas Hardy.
