Lovely bracing walk down the pier to the 'Pagoda' cafe at the pier end. The cafe serves coffee/teas and snacks and has wonderful views out to sea. The young man behind the counter was particularly helpful and very chatty, a pleasant surprise! The downside at the moment, is that a new heritage centre is being constructed at the land end...

At present the entrance is surrounded by scaffolding, but don't be put off. The new visitor centre and coffee shop will be worth the wait. There is not a lot to do on the pier - walk the 312 metres (750 feet) to the end and back, pause to watch the fishermen as they stare vacantly at their lines, waiting... More

Definitely worth a visit. The view at the end of the pier is wonderful - you can see both Severn crossings. Look at it from the shore at low and high tides - great contrasts

Just down from our hotel was this lovely old Victorian pier , (restaurants and shops close by) the pier is covered in plaques on the floor and sides , it is not just in memory but celebrates weddings , christenings , friendship and even has one by One Direction.

Countryside. North Somerset is hilly so beware, the people of Clevedon are warm hearted and welcoming, the Victorian area of stone houses has an atmosphere of quaintness.

Very quiet and nice atmosphere. There is a small coffee shop at the end of pier. It was closed at that time but it seems to be a nice and affordable cafe. Wish we could have a cup of coffee with this nice surroundings

Lovingly restored and looked after by a trust and from donations from the general public. This is a beautiful Victorian legacy. The pier has some wonderful views of the Welsh coast and the holmes.

This must be the most photographed pier in UK. The simple arches made from railway lines left over from the Victorian London to Bristol GWR, the plain wooden deck and low key structues at the end make for wonderful photographic opportinities, especially seeing as the sun sets out to sea at slightly different angles depending on the time of year....
