Lovely funfair With good variety of rides . Good choice of options for tokens individual or book of tokens or wristband very reasonable prices . Do not do arcades so can not comment on those but plenty avalible . We take a picnic nice big field opposite for eating it on. To avoid expensive food outlets at the pier . Wonderful crazy golf course to not included in a wrist band so is a pay more attraction . Worth it though .

My sister in law and I love visiting Clarence Pier. Food available at Browns or the Beefeater next to the Premier Inn Hotel. Lots of arcade games to play to while away a few hours and relive our youth. (air hockey, simulated motorbike ride and simulated car races), some shoot em games and the one armed bandits. great fun.

Went to Clarence Pier fair with family. I would like to thank the owners and every member of staff for such a great team effort of keeping the place so safe during this Pandemic. On the fairground rides all staff are friendly and helpful and clean every single ride before and after a visitor uses it.... Amazing... There are hand Sanitisers everywhere and are fully functioning and full. Inside the arcades they are well ventilated, sanitisation everywhere and face masks mandatory, even staff were wearing them. I had a great day out with the family and want to thank the owners and every member of staff for such professionalism and so glad to see a company put so much effort in keeping their visitors safe... Well done 👏 👏

It has been a long time since I have been to a fun fair but not a lot has changed, Loud music and the smell of burnt sugar from frying doughnuts greet you as you walk in to the area. Children seemed to be everywhere lots of shouting all of which left me feeling old!! Some of the attractions were closed due to Covid 19 such as the climbing frames but the big wheel, crazy golf and the arcade were all open. Think there were less people wearing face mask than should of been although a lot of the place is outside people were not keeping a 2 metre distance. We didn't stay long but spent a few minutes watching the Hoover craft leaving from behind the fair

We spent a whole day here as we booked the premier inn prior to sailing over to Isle of Wight and we had a great time. Buying the book of tickets was great value and we went on every ride! (I too went in every ride including the waltzers as my youngest is 6) and I wanted the tickets to be used up more quickly! Lol. We did crazy golf (very reasonably priced), paddled on the pebbly beach (I enjoyed looking for unusual pebbles too!), finished with fish and chips and an ice cream! Really impressed with how professional the fairground staff were in ensuring everyone’s safety, wiping each ride in between. Thanks for lovely happy memories!
