Visited the pier during our recent holiday and is a great place to spend a few hours with children, with both the funfair and amusements for entertainment, really enjoyed it and the funfair was good value with the tickets deals

There seemed to be many more attractions than previously, and there is something for everyone. There are stalls and rides galore, with some of the more sophisticated rides sitting alongside the traditional. The little shops are interesting selling everything from the usual seaside 'tack' to...More
