We took a stroll along the pier today and stopped at the pavilion. Excellent arcade where you can play authentic arcade games. Just change your coins to old One Penny pieces. Loved it. We enjoyed the fresh air and view from the pier.

Hi, on sunny weekends the pier opens from 9am. During the week it’s 10am. In the winter it’s 11. Hope this helps.
