This pier is well maintained but that is where the interest falls away, unless you just want to walk to the end. Sorry old cafe and the normal slot machines, worn out carpets and a few benches. I'm sure this could be improved.

Great to stroll along and a bar/cafe where you can buy refreshments. We are a couple so didn't take much notice of the children's activities. Would definitely recommend a walk along this if you are in Bournemouth

Friends birthday visit to Bournemouth, always show people the pier as it has withstood the elements well, arcade attractions and brilliant views along the coast. Always seems clean and tidy when we visit.

The pier is as most UK piers have become , a walk down to a cafe/ restaurant with little other reason to go on it. I am sure the more happens during the summer , but even then there is little space for anything as a zip wire station is at the end for rides to the beach. As with... More

Plenty of choice for food and drink, and a great view of the coast. The pier appears to be clean and well kept.

Walked from one end to the other and back. We don't like the noisy stuff but the pier itself is lovely and well maintained. A bit windy on the day we visited.

On a clear day with sunshine a stroll along this pier is a joy. Unfortunately, they charge in the season.

Last time I went on the pier was to do the zip wire with my son. I asked to be pushed off as I couldn't leap!! My son went backwards. Was good fun. There's a amusement arcade, bar and loos at the entrance, and to go on the pier you have to pay. To be fair, it's not that much.... More

A traditional pier that has been kept in good condition. Nice for a stroll down to the end or to observe from a distance as people use the zip wire. Amusement arcades for kids too.
