  • This pier is lovely for just strolling along, taking a seat and simply enjoying the stunning views across the bay to Swanage town and further on to Old Harry Rocks. There's a tea room and plenty of quiet spots to fish or simply take time to read the hundreds of memorial plaques embedded in the walk boards, quite unique. A one pound entry fee makes a visit well worth it and highly recommended.
  • I really love this place. I've been diving here over many years. Great place for a first sea dive for any beginner. Swanage town is great, with lots of places to eat and the beach is good for the kids.
  • Love it, but you have to pay. £1 shouldn't break the bank, but it's annoying. The council should pay for the upkeep, as it's an iconic part of Swanage - the council get masses of cash from the locals, not to mention the holiday trade via the businesses in the town. Eventually, the whole thing will collapse... Where's your pride, Purbeck council? Come on! 🤔
  • Had a great time with family. Kids loved crabbing. Fantastic gluten free chips at Harlees, fish and chips just ask for gluten free. Nice Pier for fishing and strollers. 👍
  • Not bad. Great view and nice and clean/tidy but you have to pay to go down there and all you get is the view.
