Grand Pier, Weston super Mare

One of a number of elegant and historic piers dotting the coast of the UK, Grand Pier extends gracefully into the Bristol Channel. Boasting an old-time charm created by the picturesque entrance arch and the grand pavilion at its end, the pier remains one of the most attractive destinations in the Weston-super-Mare area. The stately exterior of the pavilion, though, belies the action that awaits inside. Take the wheel of a go-kart or bumper car here, strap into the F-1 flight simulator, or exercise your vocal chords on Britain's smallest rollercoaster. A house of horrors, 4-D cinema, and laser maze make up just a few of the additional attractions. Stay into the evening and you'll be treated to the sight of the walkway and building all lit up. A visit to Grand Pier represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Weston super Mare driving holiday planner to plot your vacation.

  • We lasted visited the pier 10 days ago. It’s a relaxing stroll, although there is a land-train which operates in the summer if you need it. There are a selection of cafes at the end, but closed out...  more »
  • Haven't been on a pier in ages and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Clean and tidy and the usual penny (2p now) arcade. Lovely long walk to the pier head and you can walk under cover and be protected....  more »

  • Worth the Bank Holiday Traffic queues. Good value fast food and a really well thought out and top fun arcade. Always somewhere to park near to the Beach which is vast enough for everyone to find their own space. Superb.
  • Really good attraction for all the family. There is plenty to see and do on here. There are amusements, soft play and rides. Everything you need for a day out. There is a charge to go onto the pier, per person, so just be aware of this when you go on. They sell wristbands which offer unlimited rides.
  • Lot of things to do inside grand pier. Parking is an issue but we found a car park in shopping centre. Beautiful scenery around beach. One pound is entry fee to grand pier. Facilities were amazing. Kids loved this place. Wish we could have more time to stay. Staff were helpful and professional. Definitely visit this place again:) happy day
  • Fun place for the younger to teen members of the family. Lots of arcade style games and toy grabbers, ghost train, laser tag and much more, upstairs go karts and a F1 style sit in and drive. Do take plenty of coins though nothing is free. The fish and chips at the end of the pier were very tasty, perhaps it was the salty!
  • I love piers and this is a good one! Only downside is it costs to enter with a barrier and for some reason closed at 7 on a Thurs in August! The arcade is massive and loads of games, experiences, including a ghostly one and a big pirates of the Carribbean shootout. Rides and you can purchase unlimited wrist bands. There's a Tiffany's restaurant at the end. You can sit in the outdoors areas overlooking the sea.
