We went to visit the pier on our recent first time visits to Weston-super-Mare. Quite happy with the £1 entrance fee as the upkeep for something like this must be incredible. When you get to the end of the pier there is a rather large arcade with the standard machines you will find anywhere. We put a fair amount of... More

Thank you for your views. The Grand Pier does cost a lot to upkeep and we appreciate that you understand that. We invested £52 million in the re-build. We have an Edwardian-style tea room at the very rear of the Pier which has stunning sea views on three sides. Our Sundaes ice cream parlour is an American themed venue which... More

We had a wander while on holiday in the area. I didn't mind the £1 admission fee although I would think if you had a large family this could cause a problem but its needed for the upkeep and I think keeps the pier free from dodgy characters. Not much to do at the end if you do not like... More

Impressive for a new Pier bu t not spoilt by being a newhy built Pier. Open air walkways either side of the central covered glazed walkway, ideal for all weathers and sitting in the winter sunshine must be a treat. The only down side it cost a £1 to walk it.

I was really looking forward to seeing the pier since it was rebuilt and revamped but was shocked to find you have to pay to go on! WHY? You pay £1 each to go on to walk to the end where it is a massive arcade. So technically you are paying to enter an arcade which itself is pricey. Very... More

We have introduced a nominal £1 entrance fee to ensure the essential maintenance of the Grand Pier sub structure. This has to be carried out annually and runs into hundreds of thousands of pounds. Unlike other attractions, we are a quarter of a mile out to sea and open to the elements 365 days of the year. We are custodians... More
