Inspirock Rating:
3/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web
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.

  • We we're a party of six OAPS, we found it an interesting way to spend a couple of hours, however the entertainment is aimed at much younger people and is great for children. 
  • Great fun until partner hurt himself on the helter skelter, I did laugh though, it is a huge arcade and there is something for all ages, I wouldn't want to think how much you could spend in a couple o...  read more »
  • Weston-super-Mare has become so run-down over the years, and is now more dingy and unpleasant as ever. This pier however is a diamond in the rough. Yes, it's £1 to get on, but the games are great fun, the views are really stunning when the weather is good. Some go-karts and fairground rides are great fun. A bit expensive for a few things, but well worth a visit.
  • You have to pay 1 pound to enter the pier which I didn't mind adds up tho was 7pound with us all. Arcade games were reasonably priced I think kids enjoyed it. Restaurant on there was vile got a refund the chicken nuggets were burnt and fish didn't taste right and we ended up with bad stomachs 😷
  • Great views over the beach (should watch the tide come in from here!) and across the estuary. Big arcade and a few restaurants. Can get busy. £1 entry.
  • Had to pay to get on to the pier. There was not a lot of good 2p machines and the ticket machines weren't great compared to other places. Looked like a really cool place but we wanted 2p and ticket machines. Lovely views.
  • I love a pier. I could stand on the end of one looking out to sea for hours. Weston pier certainly looks the part - modern, of course, given the complete rebuild after the 2008 fire. I didn't even mind paying £1 to enter. I was disappointed, though, to see the proliferation of mean-spirited signs - "Only food bought on the pier to be consumed", "Tables for our food and drink customers only". They left a bad taste in my mouth - doubly so as the vast majority of the food kiosk were closed. No idea if that's normal for a weekday in June, but either way I don't see the point of banning people from eating their sandwiches on a bench they paid £1 to sit on.
