Clacton Pier, Clacton-on-Sea

Amuse yourself at Clacton Pier, a large pier complete with arcades, rides for all ages, restaurants, and even a bowling alley. If you want to glimpse life beneath the pier, pay a visit to the SeaQuarium, where you can view local, freshwater, and tropical marine life. Connect with marine life in another fashion by spending the day fishing off the dock for four-pound Carpling. End the day onboard a steamer cruise along the Thames, which romantically passes under the Tower Bridge. Save money and time by booking amusement park bracelets, bowling, fishing, and boat rides online.

    For me it was just another pier. Numerous arcades and fair rides to choose from. Quite nice to stroll to the end and catch the sea breeze. Probably more attractive when the sun is shining...  more »

  • I come here for bowling, everything else is fun but Bowling is me fam. Friendly staff. Beer is responsibly priced. Lots to do. Kids/Family friendly. Great day out.
  • Good fun for the young ones. Took my two four year old nieces and they really enjoyed themselves. Options were quite limited considering the price of the Tiny Tots wristbands though (£7.50 each and only about 5 rides) and they were really upset they couldn't go on some rides without an adult. One of me and two of them meant this wasn't an option. I'd go back but maybe not bother with the bands again.
  • the kids love it. New rides added. nice family day out. Free parking. The birds with their droppings the only nuisance.
  • Live music on the beach. Good facilities and very present beach patrol. Lovely place for a family day out.
  • Had fun with some of my friends there although the people who work on each ride could've been a little bit enthusiastic as they look they just want to finish the job and get the money. Come on, it's supposed to be fun, try smiling or something.
