We only visited the slot machines and amusement arcade at the front of the pier. The usual mix of old favourite 2p slots and modern ride on games. The rest of the pier was closed - don't know if this was due to the weather or another reason. Maybe not the most glamorous of places but a traditional seaside experience.

This used to be a lovely pier with lots to do and views from the end, I realise the storms damaged it but it seems to be more about what money they can get without expenditure rather than supplying some entertainment along the way now. The arcade machines are not as good and you never win and the grabbers anymore... More

So many piers have disappeared so it is lovely to see this one. Needs a slight shush up but would happily revisit. Lovely views of the bay too

Having not visited Teignmouth for about 10 years I was amazed to see the facilities around the pier. Named 'The Hub' there is a larger grassed area I front of the pier, ideal for ball games or picnics. Parking was relatively easy and most was pay and display, where we parked it was £1.80 for 2h which you could renew.... More

After battling through the cacophony of the amusements and gambling machines the pier opens up to reveal a handful of lame, faded children's rides. How about setting up a food and drink area and generally smartening the place up?

Great little pier in a great little town. This pier was almost destroyed in the flood and storms of 2013. But has been re furbished to a happy place for all

We have been staying in Newton Abbot for 2 weeks, and found ourselves visiting teignmouth everyday because the kids loved it so much! Spent many hours on the pier, which the kids loved, the staff were more than helpful & I couldn't rate them highly enough! Still here for 2 more days, and funnily enough we are back there this...

Ok so it isn't really that grand but it still has its charm! Spent a couple of hours playing the arcades and eating delicious ice cream on the pier and gazing at the beautiful backdrop. Grab your 2p's and head down to the pier and prepare to feel nostalgic!

I used to visit the Pier as a child so I hold many fond memories of my time visiting the attraction. It was lovely to take my three children to see the retro Pier for themselves. Coming from Brighton where the Grand Pier here is generally heaving and very overwhelming, it was lovely to enjoy something much smaller and much... More

No trip to the seaside is complete without a visit to the pier, and this is no exception, except that this is a small pier and really only an amusement arcade with a small attached cafe. The place has been repaired and modernized since the storms.
