Grand Pier, Weston super Mare
(3.1/5 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.

  • Visited out of season but still £1.00 each to enter, although mostly closed. Can imagine in the summer months that it is very busy. 
  • My daughter loves the pier, plenty to do and even when it's raining it does not affect her fun. Only downside is the quality of food in the restaurant. 
  • Very pleasant strolling along the pier and viewing the town from afar. But the main attraction seemed to be the amusement arcade which is full of gambling machines, one armed bandits etc and very nois...  more »

  • If you live near the sea you will know there are not a lot of piers left, Weston has done well to maintain a feature that will always be there for families to enjoy. Yes it will cost you money to go on it and yes your kids well want to spend spend spend, however versus the cost to maintain and keep open I am sure leaves a very small financial margin. The pier will create memories and remind you of happy times so enjoy the moment. Sun set and evenings are amazing and the pier really becomes part of the whole sea front. We live the pier and Weston sea front.
  • Excellent Pier. Love going there in the sumner. I don't understand why people out so many bad comments about this place. Why not but a annual pass if you want free admission. It's only a £1 charge. That's so cheap to get on per person. Disgrace to all people who think the £1 charge is expensive. Remember, the money goes to the Pier
  • Nice place. We had fun. Kids love it but we need to pay for the entrance not used to he like that.
  • Popular themed pier, replacement for the fire damaged pier. £1 entry fee helps with the volume of visitors, and gives access to restaurants and clean toilets. Views back over Weston are inspiring.
  • Read a lot of reviews that seem negative...come on...this is a pier in a British seaside town! It is exactly what you'd expect! Lots of arcade games, 2p slot games etc that you will never win on, because they are designed that way! You need 14 million tickets to win a small foam glider, the food and drinks (coffee) is over priced and not good. Just a get a coffee from a nearby shop, some chips from the chippy across the road? But it is still great fun! All the staff were very friendly and the pier itself was pretty clean, with a lot of maintenance staff darting around fixing things as they broke. Yes having to pay £1 per person to walk on is ridiculous, but I just lifted my daughter up and over and the kid on the turnstiles just looked at me, shrugged and smiled. No problems. If you want classic, British seaside fun then the Grand Pier is what you're looking for
