It's A Pier

Very commercialised - arcades etc. Good to experience a walk and look around. It was clean and tidy but catered for children and 'kiss me quick' type approach.

A little annoying that there is now no train service for people who are disabled and that you have to pay £1 to get there. However, the facilities are clean and pleasant with stunning views and everything on it is a lot of fun.

very disappointed that firstly we had to pay £1 each to even step foot on the pier-then they use every available opportunity to extort more money out of you. At the end of the pier is a big arcade and a tearoom thT looked rather expensive. The arcade itself was nothing special and only a couple of 2p machines. The... More

Wow I have never seen a pier with so much on it. Loads of rides, arcades & things to do. A nice pub with covered seating on side of pier overlooking water. £1 to go on pier but well worth it. Beware though, if you have kids, it's going to cost a few quid, they'll be well entertained though.
