Pier Head Pavilion

Pierhead Pavilion Llandudno

A close up view at the roof of the pier head pavilion; The pavilion is now used solely as an amusement arcade, but was originally built as a bandstand.

John Morava and his orchestra played here between 1938 and 1974, performing twice daily at 11am and 7.45pm.

More on the fascinating history of the pier, and other Welsh piers can be found in the excellent book titled ‘Piers of Wales’ by Martin Easdown & Darlah Thomas.
