Walk along the pier to the end where you can enjoy a lovely cup of coffee before catch the train back. The runs runs every 30 mins approx and is great for children’s tired little legs!

The Pier is a fun thing. You can take a return trip to the end of the Pier in the little diesel train. Or you can walk there and back. Or mix and match train and walk. We thought £1 for walking there and back...More
