Great Fun

Loads of games, slots and grab machines. Rides not normally seen on a pier, and all in all a fun place to spend some time. Only £1.00 entry fee and recommended.

The pier was very quiet. Would love to recommend it but as you have to pay, I think the businesses at the end should be open!

Visited the pier and was very disappointed with the price of the rides and wish they would bring back some of the old fashioned rides and machines

Thank you for your recent review of our attraction. We are sorry that you felt we are overpriced. We continue to be one of the cheapest admission attractions in the South West with games from as little as 2p per play (our iconic pushers) and rides from 50p. We also offer unlimited ride wristbands for £15 per person on weekends... More

My kids love the Grand Pier - so may different things for them to ride, play on, spend some money on the little coin machines. They love it! - I would wait to a rather sunny day before going though as it does get a little blustry on the walk up

A little disappointed. Having visited many piers in our time was a little disappointed, although the Venus has been refurbished to a high standard was put off by having to pay a pound to walk the pier, the attractions on site were pay as you play so if we had brought the children it would have worked out rather expensive...

We had not been to Weston for some time despite living only half an hour or so way from here. We were pleasantly surprised at how much it was changing - definitely a lot more 'up-market' with a nicer range of eating houses/cafes being opened. The promenade has also had a face lift. We went on the pier - which... More
