Beautiful victorian pier, perfect to enjoy a sunny day. The game zone is also a place to spend some time. Like taken out of a fairytale, it is beautiful!

Although the pier has been burnt it is interesting to see how they are getting along with the restoration. We took our little grandson to see how it was coming along ad he was fascinated to see the men cutting the metal work to get it down. Look forward to seeing it finished. At the moment you are unable to... More

Yes it had parts burnt down and was being repaired but most of the pier was still active. Enjoyed the English tea house. Tea and scones we enjoyed.
