About

COVID UPDATE - We are open for pedestrians and there is a designated fishing area at the Pier Head, but no trains are running.


Members of the public are still able to enjoy the pier on foot. Please note that the Pier is of course the longest pleasure pier in the world so a round trip walk will be almost three miles, though the cafe will be open for a welcome rest.

Opening and closing times during this period are as follows:
08:15 - 20:00 Mon - Sun (last entry on the pier at 19:00)

wheelchairs with particularly slim wheels may be affected by the gaps between the deck boards, if customers are concerned they may borrow one of our on-site wheelchairs as a substitute.
