We have been to the pier many times, there is plenty of amusement arcades on the pier but my favourite is at the end of the pier where they have an old theatre where they do excellent shows throughout the summer season.

Visited here this month and had a fab time. The pier was full of things to do with the kids. We made out own message in a bottle and threw off the pier. I wonder where they are now!!!

Nice and clean, lots of rides and arcades to keep the kids happy. Various cafes and eateries. The theatre had a lot of shows advertised but unfortunately, the weekend we visited, there was nothing available. Lots of big names appearing there, so maybe catch one next time.

Firstly there is a disabled lift on the back stairs that you access thro the pub at the end of the pier, the lift wasn't in use, so 2 members of staff pushed disabled ppl up the ramp to their seats then took wheelchair/ scooters away!

just taken great pics on the pier of my Children, Grandchildren, niece and nephew. following yet another family tradition . Amusement arcade and family rides loads of fun for all. Places to eat and drink with a great atmosphere. Gorgeous hot donuts and waffles. Our family have been coming here year after year . never disappointed.
