At one time when you could walk up and down the pier for free it was nice. Now with a charge it's a total rip off! Surely the money you spend on the pier in the machines should be enough to help upkeep the pier?

Thought it was out of order charging £1 to walk on the pier. There is only grab machines and slot machines that pay you in ticket for a prize which are a load of rubbish. Cafe dark and dismal. WON'T be going on there again

The pier has a great history which is why it is a shame they do not display this anywhere (they you can buy the dvd!) You now have to pay £1.00 per person to even get in which is just extortionate as you go on to spend a fortune whilst on there. Walking down the pier is great in itself... More

Good place to visit with the family, with soft play area for the youngsters, a bar and food outlets. You can get a wristband for about £12 which gives you access to most of the bigger rides and attractions all day. The only problem i have is that you used to be able to get onto the pier for free,...

Charge just to walk on, then Full of penny arcade type of slots etc just waiting to take your money. The tea room smelt like a dirty mop had been used to clean the floor-so put me off using the place! Left and would never go back

I visited with my family and we could not get over the fee just to walk on. I do not agree with the up keep comment at all as people are going on the Pier to spend money in their establishment! I used to be a frequent visitor to the old Pavillion which had more to offer and was designed... More

Pound to get in, in my opinion this is to at least make some cash from the people who get to the arcade at the end and realise it's nothing but a cash milking machine and leave without spending. Terrible grabber machines that wouldn't lift a feather, dozens of machines pumping tickets out for crap prizes and way over priced... More

Its a sign of the times being charged £1 entrance fee to the grand pier but once you access it you begin to appreciate the fact that it was burnt to a cinder a few years ago and was completely rebuilt.The pier itself is much like any other with its scattering of cafes,food kiosks and slot machines,but a nice twist...
