We had a lot of fun on the pier, though the attractions were a little pricey, and some weren't working! I was particularly disgruntled when I tried to win a poo emoji keychain and it got caught as it went to fall in to the prize catch (darn!). We had a brilliant time though, I'd recommend saving all of your... More

Decided to go on the pier, quite surprised we had to pay!! Once on there discovered there was a covered walkway to the end. Being hardy we decided to walk outside. Interesting with good view and a lovely Edwardian Tea rooms at the end. Worth the £1 each to go on,

The pier is great for a gentle stroll, just to sit and watch the world go by or enjoy the amusements at the end of the pier. There is something for everyone

Had fun in here, lots of machines to keep you busy, don't agree with the one pound to get in though other than that had a good afternoon out of the rain. Will go back again for sure

Paid the £1 entry fee each to walk on the pier and spent a couple of hours on the many amusement machines during a wet November day.

this pier has been re built after the fire, and can imagine that in the summer it would be full of visitors, however for the time of year that we went only the fair was looking welcoming. There was everything a family could wish for, and if you bought a wrist band the rides would be very good value for... More

If on holiday or a local take the time to go along this old Pier which is even better since the fire destroyed it a few years ago - also worth going to the very end for a Cream Tea in the Victorian Cafe/Restaurant.
