Yarmouth Pier is the longest wooden pier in the UK and was opened as a leisure pier in 1876.

In 1931 it became the responsibility of Yarmouth Harbour Commissioners and in 1975 it received Grade 2 listed status, recognising its local and national importance for its unique design and wooden construction.

Since its construction Yarmouth Pier has undergone many changes including repair after impact from collisions and restoration after damage caused by wind and waves and marine creatures such as the gribble. These changes and its 140 year history will be used to bring local heritage to life in The Pier’s Tale. The Pier won’t just tell its own story but also that of the local people, surrounding land, sea and skies and the changes to coastline, climate and marine habitats.
