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.
