At just a £1 entry this pier is lovely to stroll along to get fantastic views of Swanage and the bay. There are boat trips departing from here through out the day.

Beautiful, Quaint, Lovely. Great place to take some photos. Only a pound to visit. Which goes towards upkeep. Well done people of Swanage for keeping your pier.
