Lovely old fashioned pier. Slightly scary going on it in a wheelchair ! Would be good if there was better facilities for disabled users. A smooth walkway would be great as the wooden slates can be tricky when using a wheelchair

There is carnival games. But can be hard. Amusement is good. Fun fair is more for kids not really for young adults. There is an restaurant but order anything. It's the only place that toliet facilities during the day. Shops for rock n ice cream lovely. Cafe nice.

It's a Pier! Has the usual what you would expect! Arcades and rides etc. Near the end is a bar and entertainment venue and right on the end is a mini fun fair with rides which was ok.

The staff are very rude don't want to Help, always standing around moaning just made it a very bad experience. On the arcade the pub and game stalls are well worth the visit and money.

The pier has definitely lost its magic for me. The arcade is run down and in desperate need of new up to date machines (we had to call an attendant 5 times to come and help with a dodgy machine). The children's rides are seriously over priced and have definitely seen better days. I only visit for old times sake... More

I've been here twice now and always enjoy it - my only complaint is that the radio control lorries never work properly! (maybe I'm daft for trying it again 2nd visit?) they either don't steer one way or steer non stop etc! my 3 year old didn't notice though! the pier is well maintained with a lot to keep you... More
