The historic Llandudno Pier is now up for sale with a price tag of £4.5million, along with Blackpool Central Pier and Blackpool South Pier, which brings the total price of listings by Cuerden Leisure to £12.6million. Llandudno Pier first opened in 1877 and has provided the locals and visitors of the Victorian town with a vast array of attractions.
The pier is well known for its Victorian and Edwardian elegance, stretching majestically into the Irish Sea. Whether you are simply passing through, visiting for the day or enjoying a holiday in Llandudno, the pier is the number one stop and attraction for all to appreciate. You will find the 695 metre stretch boasts a selection of small shops, which sell a wide variety of products from leather goods to traditional Welsh souvenirs. There is also plenty of choice to feed your belly, with a range of cafes selling tasty treats such as candy floss, donuts, rock, fudge and the essential refreshments such as soft drinks, coffee, tea and hot chocolate.
The pier has only been up for sale shortly over a week, yet has received a staggering amount of interest from many well established leisure firms and other investors. There is no doubt that the pier will remain the same as it currently stands. Llandudno Pier is Grade Two listed, which means any future owner would require Listed Building Consent in order to make any changes to the structure, should they wish to do so.
The pier is a very profitable attraction for the local area and reportedly generates an income of approximately £1.6million on an annual basis for Cuerden Leisure. It is hoped that if any changes are to be made, once the new and rightful owner commences its new project that the overall aesthetic of the historic pier remains the same as it stands today.
