Unfortunately on this occasion we were a little late and the pier was closing for an evening event. So most of it was closed. But did manage a cheeky prosecco by the carousel

A busy day on the pier. With the hustle and bustle of a typical day at the seaside.

There are lots of arts and craft stalls, it's extremely popular for those children who like to throw their crabbing lines over the side and crabs are plentiful. Towards the end of the pier you will find freshly Donuts cooked to order, cabins that serve food and alcohol as well as soft drinks. At the very end of the pier are a few fun fair type rides for children.

Very busy, more seating needed and more businesses to fill the empty sheds would be good.

Nothing like a walk on the pier. Lots of things to look at. Kids will love the helter skelter etc. Lovely eateries. Also in summer has music events.

Herne Bay is a lovely place to visit. A small Pier but very nice with quirky little shops. Lots of nice Tea Rooms & Cafes. Seafront is nice & clean. Shops are amazing especially one called The Closet as it’s like Aladdins Cave 😊
