“Great perfect for kids”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Paignton is a lovely little town centre and always has something to do for all ages. With surrounding areas such as Torquay etc you can have a perfect holiday there like we always have done. With the nice sandy beach and the pier you are sure to be amazed. We visited whilst on holiday the other week and found that inside the pier you could literally just spend all day in there. With all the facilities you require and something to do for all they family it is perfect for people both old and young.

“A typical seaside resort pier.”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Usual mixture of fast food outlets and fairground games but the walk along the pier is enjoyable. Worth a visit whilst you are in Paignton.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

This pier is a disgrace. A few tacky shops at the start, then you have to walk through a large amusement arcade to reach an area where there is meant to be rides. These were all closed when we went on. Don't bother going out of your way for this.

“Amusement center of Paignton: Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Paignton has many attractions, one of which is the Paignton Pier. The views of the coastline from Torquay to Brixham is lovely from here.Good place to spend a few hours.
