The festive season got off to a flying start at Clacton Pier.

More than 3,000 people flooded through the doors of the landmark
attraction over the weekend to enjoy the activities on offer.

They were treated to the new Christmas Village with wooden cabins
offering a variety of food and drink and over 100 children and adults sat down
to Breakfast with Santa.

Pier’s Christmas Cracker deal which includes dodgems, golf, and the seaquarium
with either bowling or soft play for £10 per person.

Nigel Brown, communications manager, said: “Our goal is to provide the
ultimate festive experience for all the family with something to suite everyone.

already. We expect a busy Christmas period and the feedback we have received so
far has been very positive.”
