Had a pleasant walk along the Pier in a howling gale, a covered walkway kept softies out of weather. Old fashioned amusement arcade at the end, pity about the admission charge.

We have strolled along the Weston Super Mare pier many times, we had both knickerbocker glory's on there and also fish and chips with a cold beer whilst sitting looking at the sea in the sun. Highly recommend a trip down there as it is free to walk on as well!

Lovely pier and great for the kids lots of things to do but could get expensive so try and save some money up before you go to spend on the rides and games and set a limit. There is £1 charge for you to get onto the pier as well.

Walking up any pier should be enjoyable but this one was anything but that. You have to pay to enter just to walk along the pier. At the end is an arcade full of dirty eateries which stink of stale chip fat. The highlight was walking through the gate and back into fresh air!

Walking up the pier and going in the amusement arcade was always a highlight of a trip to Weston when I was little. Having to pay £4 for my family, including two young children who also had to pay, felt ridiculous. Paying to walk up a pier?! and most of the shops and food places were closed. At least it... More

The pier is great to experience once. It is mainly focused towards children in my opinion. However we enjoyed playing the various little games and enjoyed walking up and down the pier. The food served inside is average but edible. It is a fun experience but mainly child friendly

We were surprised we had to pay to walk on the pier! Not all of the shops are is use which is disappointing. The arcade part is really noisy and obviously everything costs money. This has potential tone so much more, but a reasonable attraction for an hour.

Great walk around the pier reading history and information plaques left about one complaint would be the entrance had a really bad smell as you entered but disappeared quickly clean and well maintained arcade machines weren't too bad either

I've been coming to this pier since I was a young boy. I was very pleased that it was being rebuilt after it burned down. A £1 entrance fee was added a couple of years ago. Which I actually think is quite fair. As a lot of people were bringing their own food and tea to consume at the end... More
