Very busy day during easter weekend. Very noisy with loud music, making the crowds who were here even noisier. Thought a £1 per person charge to get on the pier was pusing it! OK if this is your thing. If the weather is good, I would prefere a walk along the beach.

We took our daughter and her two girls to Weston Super Mare for the day and had a walk down the (not so) new pier - the amusements and rides were OK but not my cup of tea, but we did enjoy the restaurant (which I think was called Tiffany's) at the end of the pier - sat watching the... More

We visited the Board Walk cafe today as we are a family of 4 with two young children. The Free childrens meal offer was nothing to be desired only overdone chicken nuggets and a sausage which tasted like rubber. The chips were black and grey and they were not hot. My husbands fish had human hair on the top and... More

£1 to go onto the pier, 50p to go on the little land train to the end, £? for drinks and food and heaven only knows how much you could spend in the arcade and indoor funfair. It was a pleasant stroll and a nice sandwich in the tearooms at the far end but I wasn't with children, if I... More

Visited weston pier today with my 2 kids aged 12 and 8, we decided to opt for a wristband as the individual ride prices are quite high and so the wristband is good value. However I do think there should be an option for a wristband for children not old enough to use the go karts and the racing simulator... More

It now costs £1 per person, think there is a no fee for kids in pushchair. I love a stroll on the prom but as ever you have to pay for things these days. The prom train is 50p per person - which it has been for some time, id have preferred a free train now you have to pay... More

The usual pier goings on, good views, silly photo opportunities, ghost mansion and 2p machines, £1 entry. Worth a visit.

We decided to have a weekend away in Weston over Easter and spent a little time on the pier. We ate in The Broadwalk Cafe which is located on the left hand side of the entrance to the Pier. We waited 25 for them to warm up a panini and I had finished eating my lunch before we had even... More
