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

Not bad. Brought back memories of my childhood holidays. Usual pier attractions, in a nice setting. Worth a visit

The pier was all up and running when we went a week back. It seemed quite nice and clean. Whilst my partner and little lad played in the arcade I went along the prom, they had a recycle expedition on with old washing machines all done up as funny looking characters. I have a walking disability and found there was... More

Found this very disappointing, as the pier itself is not really open. You have to walk through a bizarre collection of amusements, to a small door leading outside, only to discover that the main length of the pier is closed. You get a bit of a view of the buildings along the front, but that's it.

Noisy, but fun! Lots of variety and daft games. My teenagers loved the basketball game! Newly rebuilt after Winter storms and a great place for kids to while away an hour or two.

The front of the pier is made from porta-cabins containing the usual slot machines and arcade games. The rear of the pier is very small as the majority of it is cordoned off and full of broken rides. Very rundown...

Teignmouth Pier is fairly average. It's in a nice area with a good backdrop. It's worth a visit but wouldn't spend much time there.

Think this pier took a hammering in the winter storms, but it is up and running. Not all the pier is open yet but you can still stroll out and take that photo of the sea front or the proud headland called THE NESS, that stands so proud in Shaldon. Hope the rest of the pier will be open on... More
