Clacton Pier, Clacton-on-Sea
(3.6/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Clacton Pier at the forefront of your travel plans using our Clacton-on-Sea trip builder.

  • Myself and three friends travel for over 2 hours from Northants to fish off Clacton Pier as we have done many times before. We parked on the Pier as usual and went to the parking/fishing permit machin...  more »

  • Well , looks like nothing changes here since 90is. Kids still will be happy anyway. Clacton itself is one of this places you quite happy with but will newer back there. Will advise you to go there no longer than for a weekend
  • Clapton pier was a great place to spend time. It had lots of entertainment, great cheap food. Sadly a little run down and needs a bit of an update. The beach is great nearby and has lots to do. Overall, had a great time there.
  • A complete assault on your senses. Busy, vibrant, colourful, very, very noisy, extreme over commercialisation of the seaside brand and the complete opposite of Frinton. Youngsters and kids will love it. If you think you'll get away from the noise by going to the end of the pier, forget it. There are loudspeakers mounted all the way down the pier to keep you entertained with loud music whether you want it or not. Spend a little time here, have your fish and chips and then move onto the promenades and beaches either side of the pier. You'll find peace and quiet and some beautiful safe sandy beaches. They stretch for miles with convenient ice cream parlours along the way.
  • Plenty for all the family here. A long pier out to sea with lifeboat at the end. Back towards the shore are more conventional arcades and rides. Kill a few hours and 2p coins in the machines. Fun for all.
  • as an attraction Clacton pier offers a lot for familys with attractions for young and old alike from a good selection of rides to bowling. good places to eat and drink range from tea and coffee at the end of the pier to the bar and hot meals at the front.
