Went here with the grandchildren last week, and was pleasantly surprised how well kept it was - and the play area was brilliant for the kids, as was the little railway.

Queen's parade is on the sea front and has about 10 places where you can eat (although some of these may only open on an evening) With children in mind, I recommend Martino's
