The Pier at Harwich

About

The Pier was built in 1862 in the style of a Venetian palazzo to provide overnight accommodation for passengers travelling by train and ship to the Continent.

The Great Eastern Railway’s terminal was the Ha’Penny Pier (the cost of entry in those days). Gerald Milsom bought the Pier in 1978 and opened a seafood restaurant. It is wonderfully situated on the seafront overlooking the harbour at the confluence of the Stour and Orwell rivers. Across the water is Shotley Yacht Marina with Felixstowe in the distance. The Pier is open all day every day serving local fish and shellfish landed in the harbour some 20 feet from the restaurant.

The Pier has undergone a large and exciting refurbishment during 2016 with changes to the ground floor bar and first floor restaurant. Welcome additions are a lift and extension to the balcony to include tables to soak up the view.

Seven of the en suite bedrooms are in this main building, seven in the adjacent Angel, all very attractive with a nautical flavour and panoramic sea view. The Angel also has a comfortable sitting room with large screen TV.

Sailing from the Ha'penny Peir can be arrnaged. Harwick is also the home of the Mayflower and is playing a large part of the historic 2020 celebrations with the building of a replica ship.

Open all year.

Dogs welcome.
