My friends and I went there on Monday 6th May. Had a good long walk along the front, nice view of the boats etc. Had some really great fish and chips at the first stall opposite the big wheel. A bit of a cold wind but the hot food was welcomed. The fun fair and amusements are always a big hit with most people. A fab day was had by us all.

Personally I am not the best person to comment on piers and amusement arcades as I do not get any "kick" out of poring pennies into machines but this place was very clean, almost relaxing compared with some others that annoy with a constant drumming noise but OK Southsea, something to be proud of.

This is quite nice, but in a fadded glory sort of way. The rides ar reasonable value for money, but some of them look like they have seen better days. The large Ferris Wheel is worth going on though.

I used to love Clarence Pier as a child. Coming back was a little bit underwhelming but this could have been due to the fact it was off-season. The arcades were great fun and the fish and chips was tasty. With a bit of TLC and a few more rides Clarence Pier would be back to its old self in no time.

Very tacky, old fashioned, poorly maintained rides, buildings and facilities. I understand that some of the facilities have been condemned?
Cheap and nasty.
