Harwich Half penny pier

Piers See & Do


The pier build started in 1852 and was opened in July 1953 and was originally twice the current size but due to a fire in the later 1920’s half was destroyed.

The name of this pier is thought to originate from the half an old penny toll charged and the pier was a popular departure point for paddle steamers until the First World War.
