#1 thing to do in Southwold. Once seen, never forgotten. This truly is one-of-a-kind. Very clever, quirky (and quite macabre) attractions. All of which sound too weird when trying to explain but are lots of fun and very peculiar. So glad I found this

Umm, not entirely sure what to say. Worth popping in, but not sure it’s exactly fun. Pretty crammed and poorly ventilated. Some games just really strange frankly. Kids will amuse themselves at least.

Our first visit to Southwold and knew nothing about Under the Pier, which was a delightful, totally unexpected, unique, surprise. Despite a couple of none functioning machines have still chosen to give it 5 stars. Left us with a definite smile on our faces.

I've visited this before and count myself as a huge Hunkin fan. But so many of the machines are broken or only partially working it's a big disappointment. Blank screens, broken headsets and lots of out if order notices. The water clock seems stuck and...More

As a part of the Southwold Pier this is a nice example of entertainment. A visit to Southwold isn’t complete without going to the pier!

Oh thank you. I laughed long and hard. I can honestly say it was the most fun ever. I wished you had even more. Good old fashioned fun for all. I have some great video of us all in stitches. Hahaha...

Never seen machines like these before! They were incredible and brilliant fun. Great for all ages - spent a good couple of hours testing them all out and having a good laugh. If you want to do something new and different - definitely go here!

A wonderful, crazy and witty arcade of home made machines, we always visit when in Southwold, it wouldn’t be a day at the seaside without it! Take plenty of pound coins and 20p pieces, you’ll want to try them all...personal favourite...the bathyscape...watch as you see...More

I don't think dogs are restricted on any part of the Pier, not even the restaurant. As long as they are well behaved of course.
