The fair was closed when we went on the pier but was nice just to walk to the end and have a seat in the sun there to unwind after a busy few days. There were a few novelty shops open and werent too dear.

Central Pier has the most to offer. Places to eat and drink, gift shops, amusement arcades and funfair rides. Great place for all the family.

Had a quick stroll down the pier on a windy out of season evening. Has all you expect , rides, food, amusements, stalls and great views of the sunset. Great seaside fun.

Great fun for all the family, Great views of the sea. Just don't bring your own food in and have a banquet as you'll get caught just like the Indian people did.

Took the kids on the pier at the weekend is was very good some good rides, nice view from the top of the big wheel. Nice little cafe beyond the rides serves very good coffee and fresh doughnuts worth a visit.

The Central Pier was busy when I visited today. The Central pier has a real family theme. 1980s, 1990s music playing. Classic rides and shops selling crafts made from sea shells. Lovely bags and purses , and interesting sea side attractions. We sat on a bench to eat our Ice cream we enjoyer the pier

Still free to go on. There are free toilets in the amusement arcade at the entrance. Loads of rides on the pier and bars and shows. Plus the usual stalls and gypsy tents.

Thank Andrew W
