Great experience for all the family! this is just as you expect I was impressed by this experience and would certainly visit again. It hasn't changed at all in 15 years and this is just the way it should be !

Now the sea defences and promenade are finished (well nearly) it's made the pier look even shabbier and outdated, but nothing a bit of paint & maintenance wouldn't fix. That being said the fairground is modestly priced for most of the "kids " rides and my young nephew loved it. I also used the family bar at the end of... More

Not in the best condition but looks like some restoration work underway, will be lovely once restored. Fun fair on the pier is very expensive, the big wheel was £4.50 per adult and only seemed to go around several times. The Waltzer was around the £3 plus mark. Needless to say we didn't go on any rides and thought we... More

This is the pier with the 'big wheel' and various other out dated fair ground rides. The kids enjoyed it however in my opinion the rides need updated as they all seem a tad rusted and dare i say unsafe looking with various things cordoned off (ie the big wheel has a few seats missing the bars not great to...

Great for the kids! Rides and Amusements are cheaper than other (maybe more popular) places. There are also Food Places on the Pier, also cheap - but good enough! For a cheap, amusement filled day with the kids, it's well worth a visit.

Although it looked like a lot of fun before riding, we paid our £3.30, got seated by a man who was pretty rude, yelling at us to go into a particular cart. We were shocked at how unsafe it felt, the safety bar could fling up at any time, so maybe the place could do with some more safety features.... More

it's lovely to walk down the pier, whether the tide is in or out. There are a lot of photo opportunities and its like going back in time, except for the prices! Rides and games are expensive, at £2-£15 each especially if you have 3 children! You get hasseled to play and ride and get fed up being polite saying... More

It is quite pricey for the rides. We spent £20 and the kids didnt get on much. You get pestered to play the games but I just walk straight past. It is good for the kids
