A stroll down North Pier is like going back in time, so peaceful. If you get chance, have a walk down when the illuminations are on (Sep/Oct) - the view from the pier is spectacular.

I viisted here to see what it was like , as central and south pier were very lively. This is a more traditional pier, which is good but we preferred central as there was more entertainment etc. wouldn't bother visiting this one again.

The North pier is wonderful but it needs some serious love and attention. Despite that it is worth s nostalgic visit. There is a real faded elegance about this old fashioned pier. There are buckets catching drips from a leaking roof and you can see through the timber boards in places but in same ways this all adds to the... More

Visited here with two kids aged 8 and 9. Couldn't find a working toilet. Eventually found one in an old building near the end. My son was bursting and just as he went in, some dirty, scruffy looking old man came along and kicked over an old water filled flower pot that was holding the door open, before staring at... More

Lovely original pier. There is a tram ride to the end if required for a fee. A fantastic place to chillax on a warm sunny day. Nice and quiet and lovely views.
