Built in 1894, and opened a year later, the 658-foot-long Penarth Pier is reminiscent of more gentle times and is one of only two surviving pleasure piers in south Wales, the other being Mumbles.
The Penarth Pier Pavilion, a Grade II listed building is being restored to its original art deco majesty, bringing about an exciting future for this much-loved landmark. In June the pier is a port of call for the cruise ship Waverley, the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world.
