Having lived in Teignmouth for many many years the pier has not grown with the times, it needs to be either completely traditional with old penny slot machines and staff dressed in costume for a place that is over a hundred years old. How about tea dances and ballroom dancing or even rock and roll now the London Hotel is no more ? Or new modern machines and a good cafe and more family friendly atmosphere. A shame really as the owner is very good to the local disabled schools in the area. Perhaps us locals ought to support it more as part of Teignmouth heritage before it is too late and we are left with a monstrosity like some other seaside towns.
