Llandudno Pier has been a popular attraction on Llandudno seafront since its opening in 1877. Holidaymakers take the stroll to the end of the pier in the 21st Century just as they did at the end of the 19th Century. Children enjoy the amusement arcades and the fairground rides. Have your fortune told or buy souvenirs from the delightful Indo-Gothik style kiosks that line the pier. What can be more British than strolling to the end of the pier enjoying ice cream cornets and watching the anglers catching ...er nothing. There are great views of Llandudno Bay and the massive Limestone blocks of the Great Orme and the Little Orme. Until recently the paddle steamers Balmoral and Waverley would visit llandudno Pier for trips around the North Wales coast. Lets hope they repair the landing stage for these marvellous old boats pretty soon! Although the holiday makers are more common in the summer season the hardy anglers visit Llandudno Pier all year round. A lot of time and effort is required to catch those mackerel, bass and flat fish. I was talking to someone the other day who had not caught a fish for nine weeks! The Pier is a Grade II listed building and many believe it be the finest surviving Victorian pier in Britain. As a British Tourist Authority report said of it - "It zooms out of the sea all 1,400ft (424m) of it, in a spectacular Indian Gothic style rather like a Maharajah's palace floating on a lake. Cast iron, brackets of iron lacework, an outstandingly pretty balustrade like an enlarged fish net, ogee roofs curling away to the sky, all add up to a totally pleasurable experience" ..enjoy!
