A superb English Pier. Nothing flashy. Just fun game machines and games for the young. Loved the basketball game - great fun! Good little ice cream parlour.

The pier amusements are as you would expect and assault on your senses . Lights flashing and noise from all directions. I walked through the cacophony to reach the pier but most of it is blocked off due to fire damage . Like most of the attractions the once Grand Pier is in need of some TLC and restoring to... More

Whilst the views around this and off it are really nice it really is in need or a clean up and revamp which is a shame as it could look really nice with some TLC. The arcades inside are OK, some old vintage machines which was cool, they should get more of them and make a thing of it.

A charming old pier in this wonderful seaside town. Unfortunately like many piers this one needs money to repair it but it's still enjoyable in this town on the river mouth. Teignmouth must rate as my favourite seaside location in Devon.

Lovely long pier but such a shame it is not made more use of. Just an amusement arcade and nothing else, what a waste. Could not some of the money going in to the new theatre be used to upgrade the pier as well ?

Probably the least impressive Pier I have been on. Indeed the best view is not ON it but looking up at it. I am not sure who owns it but ££££ investment is required. Fast food and ice creams and the dreaded amusements are at the start

We loved Teignmouth, a lovely quaint old seaside town with no pretensions to be anything else. However the Pier was a big letdown, there is obviously a serious need for money to be spent on it, whether that will happen is down to Teignmouth I guess. Other than an amusement arcade there was little else there, after the amusements there... More

Not for us. We normally love piers but to be quite truthful, apart from the games arcade at the front of the pier, there was nothing else there. It's short, so even the walk to the end was disappointing, wouldn't revisit if we went back to Teignmouth.

We found Teignmouth to be a very interesting town with a working fishing fleet, charming streetscapes and well-tended public gardens, but the Grand Pier was a big letdown. It may well have been grand once upon a time, but today it is a mere shadow of its former self with limited cheap amusements and not much else.

As someone who has recently come to live in this area it is great to see the pier partially renovated. The pier adds to the lovely promenade we have in Teignmouth but please can we have the two 'sentry boxes' touched up with a coat of paint. What a difference this would make to the outside appearance.
