The pier is host to various attractions including a bar, a café, various amusement arcades, fairground rides and various shops and stalls. The pier can be seen from the Happy Valley gardens; which is a former quarry gifted to the town by Lord Mostyn to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1887.
