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.

  • First time visiting Clacton-on-sea pier. There's lots of rides and activities of all ages to do. The arcades and bowling area seemed good, nice level of music and bright colour schemes make the place look nice. The arcade machines are also great and the prizes are generous. Great for youngsters and children. Nice views over the sea front and the beach. Recommend
  • Lovely pier with great views and things to do. Places to eat, buy alcohol and plenty of space and facilities for all including babies, disabled and pets. They also host a Jamaican Independence Beach party every year which is a fantastic turn out celebrating diversity and culture. They actually host many events which include live music and comedy performances. Love it!
  • A great time had by parents and grandparents with children in a classic seaside resort. Old but well maintained pier offers older and newer stalls and Sweet shops. Just a 2 minute walk into town too.parking not too great but I got lucky. Patience and smiling goes a long way!
  • A good selection of different rides. As you pay for most with tokens you can decide how much to spend at the outset. Beach was good fun and is nice and close to lots of amenities. We enjoyed he air show but not sure why they waited until high tide so everyone was squashed onto he beach
