Central Pier has just about everything that you would expect to find at a seaside resort. A funfair, side stalls, amusements, bar and places to eat. Enough to keep families entertained for a while but remember to take plenty of cash with you! Of course this is not everyone's cup of tea and some prefer just to have a traditional... More

This pier is very tired looking and not very clean at all. It has all the typical things, amusements, stalls and an awful cafe (end pier cafe). There are a good choice of fair ground rides, which are reasonably priced.

The central is a nice stroll to a family bar at the end. It is the place to go with kids. Only complaint is the price of the rides. £4.40 per person for the big wheel is nuts. No wonder it was empty
