The theatre itself is okay, very nice for something to pass a few hours, with some excellent shows available throughout the year. The pier itself has some children s rides at the end, which are rather quite expensive, better to go to the kiddie park next door. There are some nice restaurants/cafes also on the pier just avoid the one... More

My Partner and tried very hard to have a relaxing time on the Pier and make it somewhere special in our hearts.

Was a little dissapointed,expected more from Yarmouth pier,about the best thing was the DONKEY DERBY,at least something of interest.I suppose it is unfair to compare it to CLACTON PIER which has so much to offer,but that is where we normally go.

Had a wonderful walk along this pier in February even tho it was rather cold it was very relaxing. The pier itself does need some tlc as others have commented, hopefully the council will does some work to it before the summer. Well worth a visit tho.

went to see chubby brown had a really good night one downside is that the refreshment area is very cramped when the performers have their merchandisers in the area too and also there isn't much of a choice in products

The pier isn't so big there isn't that much to do on this pier but it's nice it's clean and it has a few things to do. Downside the truck racing game half the trucks didn't work and it shallowed my money :( good place to take photos though

Looking as beautiful as ever very tidy and clean, although you may wanna take a look at your Van Gouth machine that needs a bit of attention ;-)
