Paignton Pier has been a great place to have family fun since it opened way back in 1879, and it is set in one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in the English Riviera, within walking distance of the town centre. It is open all year and free to visit, making it a good all weather attraction for all budgets!

The pier offers stunning views across the coast, and it also looks really pretty when it is lit up at night, illuminating twinkling waters under a starry sky. It is ideal for some traditional seaside fun with the family, with plenty to amuse and entertain everyone. Trampolines, crazy golf, dodgems, ten pin bowling, mega slide, remote control cars, and a shooting gallery are just some of the things you can have a go on. There's a bouncy castle too! (Bring lots of 2ps for the slot machines!)

If you are feeling peckish, there are shops selling everything from ice cream to hand-made fudge, and don't forget to buy a stick of rock!

The pier is medium sized for amusements. Our kids played for an hour or two. Be prepared to spend a pound or two. Typical pier stuff like food, amusements and tickets for prizes.
