Swanage Pier Admission Fees
Walk along Swanage Pier and you’ll be walking in the footsteps of generations. Whether you’re scuba diving, sailing, fishing or simply strolling, this unique Victorian pier offers something for everyone including, of course, the finest views of Swanage.
In order to preserve this unique part of our heritage for future generations we need to raise £200,000 each year for running and maintenance costs.
All strolling, diving, fishing and parking fees help fund the ongoing restoration work and secure the future of Swanage Pier for everyone to enjoy.
