I know it burnt down and they probably need to make a few quid to pay off the mortgage, but charging a quid to walk up the pier...really?!?! Maybe it deters louts, I don't know but it didn't sit right with me. Up the pier there are a few rides and the normal 2p shuffled things. Everything seems to pay... More

For a small charge(£1) you can walk all the way to the end of the pier. As we went at the end of the season there wasn't much open but it was still a pleasant walk. there are seats for you to sit on and there is an under cover walk way if the weather isn't too kind.

Had to pay bto even enter the pier. Rides were OK but expensive for what they were. Food not too good and some quite pricey. Good views and nice place to take scenic pictures

This pier is purely an entertainment zone. Must say though it does have some fun rides/attractions. For £1 we went into the crystal maze and had a fun 10 minutes. There are go karts, ghost train and many other rides. prices reasonable although i do feel if you spend money on rides you should get your £1 pier charge back,... More

£1 each entry to the pier. Was clean and we'll kept. Not many things open on there but I think it's due to the time of year.
