Shop & Café
Seasonal Opening Hours
Half way along Swanage Pier you will find Marine Villas, a grade 2 listed building housing the pier shop & café, exhibition and Edwardian gaming machines, along with an amusing display of mid 1900’s ‘naughty’ seaside postcards by Donald McGill.
The Swanage Pier shop is stocked with a delightful selection of gifts and souvenirs, pocket money toys, books and cards available for purchase and you will always be greated with a friendly smile from one of our fabulous shop volunteers.
Hot drinks and snacks are also available and visitors can sit and enjoy watching the wildlife beneath the waves without putting a toe in the water, thanks to a live underwater camera.
Within the shop area we have a visitor information point where you can take part in our famous plank sponsorship scheme, join the 'Friends of Swanage Pier' and learn about our volunteer opportunites.
