Started off on the coin pushers because my girlfriend wanted a small teddy that was sat right on the edge. 6 quid later it became quite obvious that toy was slightly to big to even fall down the gap. So gave up with that and decided to try to win her a gift on one of the crane grabs instead.... More

The pier had old fashioned sweet shops, rock shop and a lovely clean cafe. There are all so an amusement arcade for the smaller ones. Didn't get to the other end as it was to far for my mum disabled mum to walk.

There is no charge to go onto the pier.It has amusements for those who enjoy them and outlets for treats. The views are quite worth seeing too.Parking is close by and reasonably priced.

OK for a walk, but that's about all unless you like slot and penny fall machines, bit disappointing really, so don't expect too much

Another pier and another bad experience for me, just boring apart from sitting and observe the waves. Also I can agree to the machines they just take your money and nothing much if you lucky enough you may get something after you spend tons of money.

Nice to take a stroll along the pier, my son enjoyed pressing the buttons etc in the arcade, thought the trampolines at the end were a bit overpriced. Plenty of 2p machines though so no need to spend a fortune.
