Enjoy quintessential British seaside entertainment at Llandudno Pier. Have fun with antique penny arcade machines and modern video games. Browse shops for curios, handicrafts and novelty souvenirs. Snack on classic beach food while enjoying views of Llandudno Bay and Great Orme.
Llandudno Pier, opened to the public in 1878, is famous for the elegance of its Edwardian and Victorian designs. Walk along Wales’ longest pier, which stretches for 2,295 feet (699 meters) from the western tip of Llandudno Bay into the Irish Sea.
Stroll along the pier’s wooden deck noting the intricately designed lattice railings and Victorian-style streetlamps. Browse the collection of small shops along the pier. Find everything from handmade candles and leather bags to books, branded T-shirts, hats and Welsh trinkets. Purchase a souvenir stick of rock, a stick-shaped candy with the town’s name embedded throughout its length.
Lean against the railings or sit on a bench and enjoy the exceptional views. Gaze along the curving North Shore Beach and look up at the dramatic limestone cliffs of Great Orme. Watch as fishermen cast lines into the Irish Sea and wait patiently for a catch. Purchase fishing permits and rent equipment at the pier’s entrance.
At the end of the pier are two amusement arcades offering enjoyment for all ages. Challenge your skills on state-of-the-art video games or play traditional arcade games such as claw machines, coin drops, pinball and slot machines.
If you get hungry, buy snacks or light meals from the pier’s food stands. Feast on hamburgers, hotdogs and buckets of French fries. Cotton candy, doughnuts, ice cream and scones cater for visitors who like sweets. Sip a cold beer or hot coffee at the pier’s bar, which hosts live summer jazz concerts.
Located at the western end of the Bay, Llandudno Pier is a short walk from the town center. Parking is available, for a fee, close to the pier’s entrance. The pier is open year-round, with more services during the summer.
