Primarily an arcade with plenty of fun things to do. Unlike some piers, no admission costs which is good and there are plenty of games and arcade things for all ages. Seafood stalls, beach shops at the front with a large bouncy slide at the other end. Toilets in the middle and prizes in the arcade for exchange of tickets.... More

As piers go it's ok. It's a long wooden platform extending into the sea. There's better piers at Blackpool & Western but this is by no means a rubbish pier. You can walk to the end AND walk back again. Then if you can handle any more exitement, you can walk to the end again. Turn around and walk back.... More

Lovely place to spend a while out if the wind. Very traditional amusements and we all enjoyed trying to win tickets. Only disappointment was they didn't have playing cards as prize. We ended up with top trumps and played that instead. Worth a look and many games just 2p!

Bright, clean and fun. Well maintained, a good place to visit! Visit at least three times a year. We love Paignton!

Lots to do on the pier, outside there is food including doughnuts and seafood. There's also a big slide, trampolines, and other arcade games. Inside there is the most amazing collection of games, some of them are pretty steep in price, but what can you expect. It's all for the fun. My boyfriend and I came with £6 to spend... More

Free entry is great but by golly your eardrums pay the price because you have to walk through the vast array of glaring arcade machine all turned up to 11! Please allow a peaceful passge to get to the end of the pier.

Although it was out of season we enjoyed our walk along the pier. Probably too many gambling machines for my liking

This is my 2nd review of this place and the 2 visits couldn't be more different. Last time everything was brilliant, quick efficient service, a clean and tidy café and a brilliant cup of tea. Today the opposite was the case. The staff were slow, inefficient and sloppy. I ordered a cream tea, 1 mug of turned up, they don't... More
