North Wales news and information

Don’t Miss Llandudno Pier for the Best Views Back to the Mainland

There are plenty of superb reasons to consider a visit to Llandudno, whether for the day or far longer. Llandudno Pier must be chief among them though, given its Grade II listed status and its Victorian heritage. It’s a great way to get out into the Irish Sea without getting your feet wet!

How old is Llandudno Pier?

Building work began in 1876 and just two years later, the pier was complete. Made largely from wrought iron and cast iron, the pier stretches nearly half a mile out to sea.

Where is Llandudno Pier?

The pier is accessed from Happy Valley Road. There is parking along this road for those visiting the area by car. You can get to Happy Valley Road from North Parade if coming from Llandudno itself, or from Marine Drive if travelling south from the peninsula.

What can you do on the pier?

You’ve got Leisure Island to explore before you even start walking along the pier itself. This is near the promenade, offering everything from the classic coin pusher machines to modern slots and arcade games.

If you walk out to the end of the pier, you’ll find yourself at the Deck Arcade, where more games await. Enjoy the views out across the Irish Sea and have a go at some of the games too. Don’t forget to bring those pennies!

This is a great family attraction with toilets, baby-changing facilities, and all the services you could need. They even allow dogs, so no one will feel left out.

Are there food services available on the pier?

Yes – in fact, you are spoiled for choice when looking for something to eat. Grab some freshly cooked doughnuts and take them with you on your wander along the pier. Alternatively, head for the Pier Café for a tea or coffee complete with a sandwich or a cake… or both. For the traditionalists, fish and chips can also be purchased to enjoy out of the paper for a true seaside experience. What better meal to have as you walk along the pier and back along the promenade?

Are there other shops to enjoy on Llandudno Pier?

Yes, you’ll find various outlets along the pier, ideal for those holiday treats and gifts. If you need something to take back to the family, Llandudno Pier makes for the ideal place to find it.

With regular work being undertaken on the pier, you can count on it looking its best no matter which day of the year you visit. Providing it isn’t Christmas Day, you’re always welcome at Llandudno Pier.
