We went to the pier several times during a recent few days away - the Pier itself is a modern light and impressive place to visit with many poinent plaques. What knocked a point off was the Cafe - on our last visit - we...More

The new pier rennovation has received architectural awards and plaudits from numerous reviewers. The pier is mostly clear space at the sea end, so it feels very open and bright and expansive. Best time of day is around sunset. You can get a drink at...More

not been for a while and although the pier is still a beautiful structure it is spoilt by the awful music with adverts coming through speakers all over the place. Really not necessary. I do like the additional seats and deck chairs around the place....More

Lovely pier, very tranquil with none of your usual pier attractions. The plaques are a nice touch, very poignant and the gold animals give it it's own quirk

I love the pier but hate the music that is now played on the pier including the open decks. Often the sound system is playing a radio station. The pier is a great place to visit for the views and the sound of the sea....More
