Grand Pier, Weston super Mare

3.1
#1 of 82 in Outdoors in Somerset
Pier / Boardwalk Historic Walking Area
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. With our online itinerary creator, Weston super Mare attractions like Grand Pier can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The pier is a place that you feel you should go, and the £1 entry is inexpensive. However, once you're on the pier, there isn't much to it. The stalls along the boardwalk are nothing beyond what is available in the street and come across as a little tacky. The arcade, whilst being the largest around, fails to offer anything more than what is already around the town. There is nothing explicitly wrong with the pier, only that it fails to impress as its reputation suggests.
  • Nice walk to the pier. There is a fee to go on to the pier. If you want to there is a train that operates during busy times. There are plenty of things to do whilst there. Lots of amusements. Various eateries. Some only open during busy times. There is a lift available to get to the upstairs amenities. If you are collecting the tickets, the shop is situated upstairs. Well worth a visit.
  • Very nice place. Helpfully staff, just the drinks and food were a little expensive. Weather a bit dull but didn't ruin the arcade fun!
  • A nice place but they do charge to get on the pier. Also, the rides and arcade machines are expensive on the pier. Lovely views from the pier to Cardiff.
  • Well worth the one pound entry fee to get on to the pier. Once paid you have access to cafes and amusements. There are also toilet facilities on both floors of the amusement arcade. Amusements give out tickets that you can spend in the shop.
