The pier is always working hard to encourage all ages to visit. The new visitors centre will be a well added bonus.

This pier was damaged in a storm over 40 years ago and was closed for many years, but reopened due to the tireless energy of many volunteers. There are no 'amusements' on the pier, just Victorian engineering at its best, with a great little cafe at the end, and a gift shop at the entrance. Good views of the Welsh... More

Having a morning with the camera and decided to pop to Clevedon. It is a very long time since I have been here and it was as lovely as ever. The pier is having work carried out but this does not detract from the visit. The staff were lovely and the fishermen who were waiting for the tide were cheerful... More

I remember Clevedon Pier from my childhood being a long forgotten relic - tired and broken. I know it's long been restored but this is the first time that I've been on it since; what a lovely place to be! A gentle stroll along to the end of the pier; taking in the views around the River Severn over to... More

Really lovely old pier, definitely worth paying to go on it if only to experience the Pagoda café on the end of the pier. If the weather is kind, we recommend the seating upstairs outside the pagoda to soak up the sunshine, enjoy the spectacular views with a nice cup of tea and toasted tea cake or perhaps a piece...

We (2 humans & 2 dogs) enjoyed a stroll along this impressive pier in early January. We had a wonderful time reading the memorial plaques on the planks and seating, looking across to Wales, looking back to Clevedon, revelling in the sunshine and light, chatting to a local fisherman, and generally enjoying the moment. I believe funds for the 'Heritage... More

Clevedon Pier is the only Grade 1 listed pier in the UK and lives up to its heritage billing with its stunning views over the River Severn estuary and extraordinary sunsets. The latest arrows in its quiver are the redevelopment of the pier entrance which will include a cafe, the resiting of the heritage shop and, the visit of One... More

Such a slender and beautiful structure almost completely restored. It is such an icon of Clevedon and it would have been criminal to let it go. Well done - the work shows both love and taste - we are so lucky it is still there! PS the last bit of the work looks close to being completed

Very interesting Heritage Centre at beginning of the Pier. Small charge to go on Pier but well worth it for the memories etched on the sides/seats, the views and general ambience of this old Victorian attraction. Makes Clevedon very memorable indeed!
