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.

Swanage Pier is owned and operated by Swanage Pier Trust, with most tasks carried out by pier volunteers.

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.

Swanage Pier is normally open from 7am to 6pm during the Summer months.

On a summer's evening, one of the finest views in Swanage is the sunset over the Purbeck Hills so we try to open later in the evenings, to allow people to stroll down and enjoy the amazing sunsets. If you would like to help on the gate please see our volunteering page.
