Penarth Pier © Crown copyright (2013) Visit Wales
Penarth Pier is a typical Victorian structure opened in 1895 as a landing stage for ships. The pier head building and theatre were added in 1929. This art deco structure has made a significant difference and enhances the pier although it has over the years suffered from neglect and damage caused through collisions from a number of ships. Fortunately a charity was set up with a view to renovating and transforming the pier and following a review of the whole site plans were submitted and refurbishment started, completion is scheduled for spring 2013.
