Great pier lots of restoration work going on, presumably before the bank holiday weekend. A lot to do. Had refreshments at the end of the pier. Bar man was very friendly. Will go again.

Had a walk along this 2nd longest in UK. Sea goes out for miles and from end of pier still unseen when tide is out. Lovely little train if not want to walk, few amusements.

Sea water is miles away & very dirty. Lot of food places around the Beach and activities for Children. If your going specially for dip in the sea, I would personally not recommend.

Apart from the amusements at either end, it's a level walk, with nothing else to do apart from admire the local scenery. During the day the little train runs frequently end to end. If you are looking for piers similar to a nearby resort, then...More
