Garth Pier

Lonely Planet review

Given the large expanse of mudflats exposed at high tide (a paradise for all manner of wading birds), it's surprising that the Victorians chose to build one of Britain's longest pleasure piers here. Built in 1896, Garth Pier stretches 460m into the Menai Strait, reaching most of the way to Anglesey. Kiosks with fanciful oriental rooves are scattered along its length and there's a tearoom at the very end. In the distance you catch the sun glinting off Thomas Telford's handsome Menai Suspension Bridge.
