About Us

Paignton Pier first opened to the public in 1879 and has seen many changes over the years. Set at the centre of one of The English Riviera's best beaches, within an easy level walk to the town centre, station and buses, the Pier has plenty of parking nearby. The pier is great to look out across the bay or to partake in one of the many amusements on offer.

Paignton Pier offers fun for all the family every day of the year with amusements, trampolines, mega slides, ten pin bowling, rides, orbiter dodgems, cafe, ice creams, shops and much more. Dogs are also welcome on a lead.
