Mumbles Pier

Holiday Travel Guide
Mumbles Pier featuring general coastal views

One of Swansea’s most recognisable landmarks, the imposing Victorian pier on the southwestern corner of Swansea Bay holds both historic value and offers an entertaining way to pass the afternoon. Once a favoured haunt of Dylan Thomas, this iconic attraction in the village of Mumbles now plays host to tourists and locals out to enjoy themselves.

Constructed during the late 19th Century, it was designed by W. Sutcliffe Marsh for the Mumbles Railway and Pier Company as the terminus of the line from Swansea. Visitors these days will find a range of traditional seaside attractions like bowling alleys, air hockey tables and arcade machines in the same spot where once a bandstand serenaded the passengers boarding and disembarking the steamers of the P & A Campbell White Funnel Fleet. The Victorian-style beach cafe offers a cream tea to die for, while the Pirate Captain ride offers the chance to see who's the greatest sea-dog of Mumbles Pier.

On the north side of the pier, an access bridge extends to an RNLI Lifeboat station which offers a fascinating insight into sea rescue that will thrill old and young alike.

Not just a family destination, Mumbles is considered one of the better known fishing spots of the Swansea area. During the summer months, anglers line the pier’s two dedicated fishing platforms hoping to catch mackerel, black bream, dogfish or even bass. Conveniently, the Pier’s angling supplies store is there for bait, line and tackle if the need arises.

For those with other fish to catch, however, the lights and electronic noises of the arcade will be plenty to keep you hooked.
