Fabulous pier, beautiful scenery by day, pleasant walks and the weather was smashing. By night, the promenade was lit up spectacularly and it was a joy to walk up and down the street listening to the waves

The walk from our hotel to the pier was wonderful. It was a bright and sunny day. When we got to the pier, we were greeted by a choir group outside and as we walked in, a lovely fish and chips shop on your right and a coffee shop on your left. The walk around the pier was fascinating as... More

I was saddened to hear that it had been destroyed by fire but heartened to know that it had been brought back to life by the new owner, Mr Sheikh Abid Gulzar.

Yes it has all the features of a pier however I don't think the tacky hideous goldend lion heads everywhere do it justice. I think the new owners are trying to give the impression as something that is not!

Good and bad things. Pier looks freshly painted and was mostly clean. Towards the end it was a bit grotty with quite a few cigarette packets and rubbish. A couple of little shops and an afternoon tea room which looked nice, but otherwise there's not a great deal there. Nice for a ten minute stroll around, with good views along... More

Piers do not fill me with excitement but this is one of the nicer ones. I did like the glass blower on this one. He had very reasonably priced gifts on sale and it is fascinating watching the craftsmen/women working with the glass

The newly refurbished pier is wonderful. Lovely new boardwalk with plenty of space, places to bide awhile and admire the views. Love the gentle glamour of gold domes and pinnacles, a refreshing experience, good for the soul.
