Better than the North pier

Better than the North pier, but still requires a lot of maintenance work some good stalls there and amusements to bring back memoires of the seaside.

There's both indoor and outdoor activities. The slots were addictive but the tickets are a ngreat way to get the children to feel rewarded😀 be back in July!

Old run down rides that look very unsafe with hackling stall holders trying to get you to play games even though you've already said no... twice. Go to Pirate Arcade instead, much cleaner family fun!

Nice old pier has been ruined by pestering travelling fair style game stall holders trying to get every last pound out of every passing soul. The ride staff are scruffy and are willing to break the safety rules for the rides if it means making more money. The arcade was dirty and full of chavs.

I love the fact there are rides on this pier. The pub was quiet and quick service was provided at the bar. The rides are more for younger children/teens but it's lovely to walk on to watch the sunset!

A lot more stores and a selection of fair ground rides, main stand out is the Ferris Wheel, but bring plenty of money.
