Herne Bay Pier
Herne Bay Pier is a typical English Victorian Seaside Style Pier attracting thousands of visitors a year. Free fishing and crabbing attracts young and old, whilst the Pier Village and fairground style attractions appeal to families. The Pier Shop is open at weekends and displays many pictures of the History of the Pier which is of interest to those who love historic Piers.
Retail units in the form of large Beach Huts have now been built on the Pier with more to be added. The traders sell all kinds of artisan items, there is a Vintage tea hut and other food stalls.
Fun rides and a side stall for visitors to enjoy. Annual crabbing and sandcastle building competitions held usually during the Herne Bay Festival (August) attract lots of visitors.
Musical entertainment and other events will be held to attract more visitors in the near future.
The sunsets are amazing. There is a small harbor to the right of the Pier harboring small boats and a launch way provides access to the harbor for small craft and jet skis.
Kings Hall further along the beach has regular events during the year.
