Went to Teignmouth for a trip. Found the old pier, can' t remember the last time I walked on a pier. They had all the old games there, the coin tipping point machines, shooting range game, fruit machines & others. It was a lovely step back in time.

We went to the pier whilst at Teignmouth for the day. The photos of the damage caused by the severe storms earlier on the year are at the entrance for all to see, once you have looked at them you can then appreciate the work that has gone in to getting the pier partially reopened. It's not perfect but a... More

I wonder if some of the people leaving these reviews are aware of how badly damaged the pier was earlier this year. I ventured down in March (a long way, I live in Yorkshire!) and was devastated by what I saw through the glass. Everything had been tossed around. It was a sad sight, but at least an 'act of... More

It is a shame that we have had to resort to arcade machines to keep our piers. At least Teignmouth still has a pier. Shabby it may be but there is potential to enhance the holiday maker's experience of Teignmouth and put it well and truly on the map.

This is probably the most tacky looking pier on the coast of England. It looks truly dreadful and spoils the view of the Ness. It's not possible to go on the pier other than through the main central access which house a large array of cheap, tacky, loud, fruit machines and other money making "amusements" designed to thrill on a...

Plenty of old type machines which is good. Also the usual 2p machines glad to see up and running again.

It was closed for a while which was so disappointing. Took my son in a few weeks ago (16 months old). He loved putting the 2ps in the slot machines and pushing the go karts around. Glad its open again!

A beautiful pier with lovely views, marred in my opinion by the amusement arcade housed in the main body of the pier. Not our cup of tea, but very popular with local and tourist kids alike. The view at the end is nice.

Teignmouth pier may be small, but it's always a favourite if we are in the area. Lots of older style machines, plenty for 2p, if anything the faster more modern rides at the front kind of spoil it ... Visit if you want lots of traditional tupenny shove, older style pinball, horse race, 2p old style fruit machines and my... More

this pier is a disgrace to the meaning of the word pier.Ok so there was storm damage. But!! Only the amusement money spinning part has been repaired. Last year the owners had allowed the last third to be used as a toilet for seagulls. Having heard that the pier had reopened I ventured to it only to find that now... More
