The pier and the sea front is really good. They have put a lot of thought into the attraction for children , which is free/ At this time when people are finding it hard to entertain their children it is so good to see that the authorities at Paignton have put so much into this area.

This was an unexpected but brilliant find !! We like our seafood and this was sparklingly fresh and reasonably priced. We tried the mixed seafood and prawns, served as 'take out' in a plastic cup. Absolutely fab. Would have had a crab sandwich but weather had disrupted supply. Strongly recommend. See pic

We spent an enjoyable couple of hours on the pier popping pennies into various machines. I was trying to lighten the coinage in my purse but kept winning and went home with twice as much than I arrived with.

Sorry, but that lovely old pier is ruined by the absolute tat on it. You can't even take a stroll to the end of the pier without being forced to walk through an arcade. Cheap and tacky.

Bring your 2ps and play in the traditional 2p machines...but make sure you have plenty of money for the other games too. Loads of traditional seaside fun to be had.
