Go karts and slit machines and a lively little train that goes up and down the pier but sadly this closes at 4.30 even on a beautifully sunny day?! Kids get to eat for free so would be great for the little ones and with ice cream parlours and pancakes this is a great holiday destination even out of season.

It wasnt great from start to finish!! Firstly, you have to pay £1 per person to gain entrance onto the pier. (Even when attending an arranged children's party!!) Then once on the pier, there is no organisation, huge queues, and even bigger prices. Wouldn't waste my money again! I live in Weston and would rather spend the money going for... More

check out facilities on the Weston web pages -its a long walk to the end - for many amusements for kids and adults - a virtually full length sheltered walkway was very handy for a wet and windy winters day. - Care though dogs are not allowed.

The re-vamp of the pier is really good. There are lots of things to do whatever your age! I visited the 4D cinema which was fun. The restaurant by the entrance is ok too, reasonably priced food and not bad. The only beef is the £1 entrance fee. I live near Weston and have been visiting the pier for years... More

Love Weston pier! Not happy with the £1 entry per person onto the pier itself but like everything else there's money to be made, plus me moaning won't change it! £12.50 for wristbands unlimited rides which works out a better deal than paying seperate. Cafe, arcades, shop, rides, indoor soft play, 4d cinema, toilets/baby change/disabled toilet, go karts, lift access... More

The kids (11 and 8) really enjoyed all the rides at the pier. I bought them the unlimited rides wristband (£10 each as I had a 2.50 off voucher).

Had office Xmas party there and although we were in the "cheap seats" the room was well presented, food was ok and entertainment very good. We had a brilliant night. Very good value although no draught beer in the bar was disappointing. As far as the pier itself is concerned not my cup of tea I'm afraid. Went there once... More
