This has to be the most cleanest Pier we have visited, not a bit of rubbish anywhere and everything was gleaming. The gaming machines look to be all brand new, and it is all very spacious inside. There is plenty to do here for young and old, and the views from the end of the pier are great. There is... More

My husband and I visited at the end of March there weather was nice - so we were able to enjoy the beach. Paignton Beach is lovely and there is a lovely walk along the sea front. The pier is ok - it's free (a lot of seaside resorts with a pier now charge a going on fee), has some... More

If you like amusements and tacky seafront, then you will like this place. Otherwise, you need to go elsewhere, especially if you do not like to be surrounded by many children! :)

We often take our boys for a few hours on the pier, We find that when you enter the pier is like stepping back in time with slot machines, coin operated rides, trampoline and inflatable slides and of course ice cream and sea food, we go with a pocket of small change and the boys enjoy playing on the arcade...

Hi there, Thank you very much for your review. We are glad that you had fun whilst visiting out pier and enjoyed the activities that we have to offer. We do believe that we have the most modern machines on offer but we do wish to keep the pier as traditional a possible. It is great that your children had... More
