It's got loads of new and exciting rides for the kids . Sent a couple of hours on the pier the kids didn't want to leave. Staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.

If you like amusements then you will not be disappointed. Plenty of varied machines and you can have a game of bingo. Just used to have a walk along - well kept.

Fun for all, full of arcades for the kids, a couple of nice pubs for the adults and that’s before you even get on to the peer. Lovely views, especially in the summer, great day out but remember your sun cream!

Walked through the pier on a cold and windy afternoon. Busy with families enjoying all the amusements and fresh air. Free to enter.
