Clevedon Pier at Sunset


A unique and unspoilt Grade One listed Victorian Pier

Clevedon Pier was opened in 1869 to receive paddle steamer passengers from Devon and Wales. Today it is a focal point for events, visits  and educational programmes in the beautiful Victorian coastal town of Clevedon.  Following a partial collapse in 1970, the Pier was rescued by the local community and lovingly restored over several decades.The ​Pier celebrated its 150th Birthday in 2019. Described by Sir John Betjeman as ‘the most beautiful pier in England,’  it is the only Grade 1 listed pier you can visit in the United Kingdom and features a range of attractions – including:

●  Unrivalled views of Clevedon’s historic seafront, Wales & The Severn Estuary - watch the rise and fall of the 2nd highest tidal range in the world. The pier has 8 spans - each 100 feet long. 

●  With an orientation to the south west, Clevedon Pier experiences very special sunsets - a photographers mecca!

●  Discover @ The Pier​ – An interactive hands on exhibition about Clevedon, The Pier and the Severn Estuary, which will entertain all ages.

●  Tiffin @ The Pier – award winning  food, drinks and ice cream - in two unique locations - the original Victorian Pagoda at the end of the pier and a modern fish restaurant opened as part of a new visitor centre at the landward end of the Pier in 2016.

●  Shop @ The Pier – You’ll find bespoke gifts for all those special occasions, from handmade jewellery and items made from recycled planks from the pier to an exciting ange of locally designed cards.

●  The Porthole Room – A  new function room with amazing views under the Pier for parties, meetings and events.

●  The best ​fishing​ for miles around.

●  Over 14,000 plaques, which celebrate visits, events, loved ones or just a great day out. Read some of the inscriptions - ranging from those in memory of people who have cared for the pier to the one marking the day spent here by One Direction.

●  A unique wedding location - we can cater for both small weddings or larger bespoke events

    It was a lovely stroll along the boardwalk to see Wales from the end of the Pier. Refreshments are available from the kiosk on the top which is a bonus. Read full review
