  • Incredibly expensive .. I was shocked to see to see such poor quality of prizes in the amusements and at the prices for the rides, drinks and food. It seems that value for money does not exist on...  more »
  • Normally I would give 5 stars but my wife slipped on 2 loose steel plates and seriously sprained her shoulder. She couldn't get up for a while on Thursday. This meant we had to stop and leave...  more »
  • Great for a day at the beach, a few places to grab a snack or buy a souvenir, but mostly a great place for a nice walk by the sea for the view!  more »

  • This is one of the better seaside piers. A lot of things going on. By far it's best attribute is the fish & chip shop at the entrance to the pier. It was the best fish dinner I've had at any seaside chippy anywhere. Served fresh and hot. Top quality fish and served in a strong bag so that seagulls can't see what you are eating. It was also a very competitive price. I would strongly recommend that you try it.
  • It's definitely a great tourist attraction, in a very beautiful location, just by the sea. Perfect spot for taking nice pictures and having a good time, there is also a variety of games and themed carousels available, for both children and adults. You can find lots of shops to buy either food or souvenirs. Beware of the seagulls! They're quite cheeky and can steal your food right from your hands
  • Great way to amuse and refresh yourself and the family for a few hours with coin operated amusement machines, rides, snacks & restaurants (with some vegetarian options). No entrance fee to pay but costs can add up quickly if you are not careful. Good parking nearby but you will need to use the app or the website to pay as there are no longer any pay and display machines. We could not get the app to work but the website allowed a smooth payment.
  • It was such an amazing place! With restaurants, bars, places to get ice cream, donuts and all the things kids love (and adults too). It also has lot of games and fair rides, which you can get on for a fee (all day ride of £25, not bad). It is also free to enter (big plus) considering the views are amazing!! Will definitely visit again
  • Great Attraction for families. Has lots of food cabins with many kinds of foods. The atmosphere is fantastic with seagulls and the sea waves. The fair with the betting machines is very unique and dazzling. A Great place to hang and It's close to the city center and the British 360 degrees amusement action and you can see pretty much the entire city and the sea shore.
