I was a bit shocked to find you had to pay to go on the pier. Nevertheless after begrudgingly paying we had a nice stroll on it. It's more for people who like arcade/ games and fun fair rides. They have done a good job modernising the complex. There is a nice view of the beach, sand sculpture festival and... More

This is so expensive. You have to pay to get on the pier to start with. Then all the rides are £3.00 each and upwards not worth the money. Shame they have to charge now for you to go on.

We love going on the pier every time we come to Weston super mare , this year was a little different . They have brought in unlimited wristbands. It is a great idea for families and My children really want to go on pier and we wanted to buy the wrist bands for them. I was disappointed to find I... More

When coming to the Grand Pier for the first time it was strange to see that you had to pay a fee of £1 per person to get onto the pier, which was fine. I would say if you're into arcades then ths the place for you as you approach the main building on the pier there are lots of... More

We have been to the pier many times in the past but not as many times since they started charging £1 per person to get onto the pier! We purchased a wristband for my daughter today as we thought that would be the easiest option - wrong! Getting them to work was a nightmare, we had to call for assistance... More

We visited the pier one Friday in August around 2pm and it was very busy. There is loads to do on the pier with all the typical attractions but everyone of all ages were having fun. It is a pity that they charge £1 to get on considering the amount most people spend on the amusements and rides! Typical pier... More
