Worth a walk along the Pier

Lots to do on the pier, entertainment/ammusments all along the pier. Need plenty of money with you. Family bar at the end of the pier sells cheap drinks. Child friendly bar!

The children really enjoyed a couple of trips to Central Pier, listing the Big Wheel & the dodgems as their favourite rides ... & I have to confess, my wife & I enjoyed those rides too.

Found the rides to be a bit expensive. £11 for three to ride the Big Wheel? hmmm... The family bar at the end of the pier was pretty good though, cheap drinks and decent DJ.

Good for a walk right to the end. Enjoy watching people having their photograph taken in old fashioned clothes and reading what the fortune teller told the stars. Wonderful views of the Tower and the donkeys on the sands. Didn't buy anything. Prefer somewhere a bit more comfortable for drinking or dining.

Not my cup of tea! Fairgrounds aren't my bag but my husband enjoyed the rides although at £15 a go for the big ones it can get mighty expensive!
