An interesting place to lose your money playing the 2p machines but of course great fun if a little noisy.

We picked a lovely hot sunny day to visit here. Plenty of parking on the seafront. The pier itself has plenty of things to eat and drink, and there is also a fresh fish stall there aswell. Since our last visit, the amusement arcade seems to have had a make over with a lot of new machines installed. Its a lovely place to while away an hour or two.

Fantastic pier the views over the bah from it are superb. Amusements are great plenty of choice and my three year old loved it. However word of advice if you manage to jock the teddy or the stack of tokens towards the edge still with the machine. Reason why the over zealous staff if you leave the machine will unlock it and reset it. Come on you have to have some chance of winning but from the two weeks I've spent down here all I saw was the staff wondering round keys in hand waiting for a chance to pounce. If you want an arcade that's Worth a go don't miss the arcade on the front at goodrington we won on quite a few occasions down there, and the staff are friendly!

Paignton Pier is not a long pier but that is good for someone like me with mobility problems. There are all the usual arcade games and food stalls but plenty of seating as you walk along so it's a pleasant place to sit in on a sunny day. The only aspect that spoils it is the children's play area at the top of the pier because it is built so close to the end of the pier that there's not a lot of room to look out over the sea. As seaside piers go, it's not bad and at least it's clean.
