Penarth Pier is one of the last remaining Victorian piers in Wales. The pier opened in February 1895 and the original structure was of cast iron with a timber deck. A wooden pavilion was added to the pier-head in 1907.
In the 1920s the pier had enhancements of a reinforced concrete landing stage and an art deco pavilion.
On August Bank Holiday Monday 1931 a fire destroyed the pier and the wooden pavilion was not replaced.
