The pier was damaged in the winter storms but is now up and running again. It's not the biggest pier in the world, but neither is Teignmouth the biggest coastal resort town. It'll keep the kids amused for half an hour.

I can recall visits to the slot machines some 50 years ago as a child. I swear they still have a few of the original machines and they surprisingly take 2p's ...... Wow that's value for money. Took us ages to spend a pound each !! Great fun......... Thank you

Although it was severely damaged by storms last winter the Grand Pier at Teignmouth has refused to lie down and die. "Grand" is a rather exaggerated description, nevertheless it does represent pure nostalgia as lots of old fashioned penny slot machines bring back memories of the 1950s - and before! There are a handful of much more modern rides too,... More

The old pier was destroyed by the big storms in February 2014. The owners have managed to rebuild the pier and replace some of the old arcade machines. The pier is a traditional English pier and at the far end it offers views towards the Ness and Teignmouth town and surrounding area. Teignmouth town is lovely with lots of things... More

When we visited, the pier was closed due to storm damage. Only the amusements section was open. Not a lot more to say, but as I have to have 50 characters on review, this is waffle. I've stated my view at the beginning.

Love a trip down a pier at any seaside, but his one looks is a bit sorry for itself, which is a shame.

Perfect for spending some pocket money, or for seeing the sea. Lots of money machines and a chance to get an ice cream.
