Worth a stroll on pier. Free entry but at this time due to works had to go thru amusements. Good views. Lots for kids to do.

Will not be going back,alot of money has been spent on refurbishing the pier, the heart has seemed to have been ripped out of it, can't see many happy little faces coming out with a cuddly toys either.

I haven't been on the pier since I was a young teenager visiting Paignton with my grandparents. The outside area seemed to be in the middle of a refit when we visited this week - but it seems like they are making some genuine improvements! The amusements area was the only thing that was fully opened at the time of... More

One of the highlights when visiting paignton is to go to the pier because it has a lot to offer. The pier has been refurbished and with that the only issue is a lot of the fruit machines have been replaced with the teddy machines which is fine for kids Hopefully you will bring some machines back in the future

There is plenty of room to move around & the whole of the covered area is warm & light. The pier is an ideal venue to take the kids for a treat, & an ideal location for... More

We went onto the pier for a quick look and ended up staying there a couple of hours, we got our 2ps and were straight on the machines. There is plenty to do and there are small step's for children who cannot reach the machines. If you like playing arcade games then this is a must visit in Paignton.
