At intervals along the length of the pier deck, you will see pretty little Victorian kiosks, each of which contains a small enterprise to interest and delight you, and at the far end of the pier, the large dome of the Pavilion invites you to sample a snack, a full meal, or just a refreshing drink. So look below and discover more about what awaits you On the Pier.

Friends of Bangor Garth Pier Shop

The Friends of Bangor Garth Pier Shop is a gift shop which is located on the pier and run by a team of volunteers. Inside you will find an eclectic range of goods, ranging from artwork to pottery to jewellery, all created by local artists and craftspeople. Several of the artworks that we sell have been commissioned by us and depict our pier in all its glory. Our aims are to raise money for pier restoration and support local creative businesses, and also to be a welcoming presence on the pier, giving locals and tourists alike an exciting retail opportunity. We are open every day – seven days a week. Come and have a browse – we have something for everyone! Cash and card payment are accepted.

The Entrance Kiosk

The entrance kiosk is manned 7 days a week by volunteers of the Friends of Bangor Garth Pier. This enables our lovely team to welcome visitors and collect the entrance charge of £0.50 for adults over 16. Annual and lifetime passes can also be purchased along with Student annual and 3-year passes. The Volunteers will also tell you about the pier’s history if you ask them.

Alan’s Woodcraft

“I’ve been here on the pier for 27 years (since 1997).  I sell Welsh giftware and I make the woodcraft myself.  Crabbing items and Welsh Love Spoons are the most popular things I sell. I enjoy the company – talking to people about the pier and the fish etc found in the Menai Straits around the pier.”
