A sunny afternoon

Sandown Pier is great as an amusement arcade. You are also able to fish off the end of the pier There are various eateries on it. Suitable for everyone. Dog/child friendly.

The amusement area was open with all the games machines but we couldn't get to the far end of the pier

I reckon these are the most extensive and best amusements on the Isle of Wight, there are loads of them! Also a bar and café in the main building. Main part of pier closed for the winter but I doubt we'd have got past the amusements anyway!

Closed the bottom of the pier at night so was very restricted. On the last day we went down to Shanklin pier. And the prizes were much more plentiful and better.

The Arcade on Sandown Pier is great. We stayed there until we had to be pushed out at closing hours.

They have started to decorate and clean the place up. Looks much brighter. Enjoyed motorbike races and of course the 2p shove machines, love them ❤️ won a toy on the grab 'crane' machines too. Great evening 🎉
