Been here load of times over the years. It’s still a traditional seaside must visit attraction. It’s a little old hat now but still worth a stroll to the end of the pier. It was rather windy today and parts of the pier weren’t open...More

A few arcades, a few stalls (camel racing, darts, rifles) and some rides (dodgems, large slide) everything to keep you busy for a couple of hours. There is also a bar and stalls to get ice cream and sweets. Halfway down is the theatre which...More

Lots to see and do. Good on a rainy day, there are undercover activities. Good vie of the sea wind turbines.

As piers go this is not the best. Normal mix of arcade, cafes, gift shops, pub and a large theatre with familiar names lined up. Most of the pier actually looks down to the beach rather than the sea and in that respect not much...More

When we arrived a biting wind was blowing around Pier, hard to escape it. Can't escape the food smells as you first enter the Pier. Doughnuts cooking hard to say no to, okay then if I must. Lots of machines along length of Pier, kids...More
