Llandudno Pier, Llandudno, North Wales

Llandudno Pier as seen from the base station of the <a href='http://www.tentopllandudno.co.uk/attractions/Llandudno-Cable-Car.html'>Great Orme Cable Car</a>

Llandudno Pier stretches out from the north shore into the Irish Sea for over 2295ft and is the longest pier in Wales and the fifth longest pier in the United Kingdom.

The pier was originally opened in 1858 and was intended for use as a major port between Wales and Ireland. Unfortunately the pier was badly damaged in a great storm in 1859 and had to be rebuilt. The pier was opened to the public in 1877 and a landwards extension was added in 1884 which was later rebuilt in concrete and steel in 1969.

The pier is a popular attraction for visitors with its many small shops and fun rides not to mention the stunning views it offers of the Great Orme and Llandudno Bay. For those willing to make the walk there is the Pier Pavillion at the end of the pier along with a landing stage for boat trips.

The pier is a popular location for fishing.
