Situated at the start of Dorset’s World Heritage Jurassic Coast, Swanage Pier looks as glorious today as it would have done over 100 years ago. As part of the town's unique Victorian history, the Pier has given pleasure to generations of holidaymakers and locals, provides moorings for historic sailing ships and other vessels, and is a valuable marine habitat. Under the care and stewardship of The Swanage Pier Trust, the Pier has been restored and maintained to enable this magical setting to be used as a unique wedding venue. A full marquee package is included to ensure ceremonies can take place throughout the year.
