Claremont Pier's History

When the Claremont was built in 1903, piers were in their heyday and no pleasure resort was complete without at least one! Paddle steamers used to berth at the pier three times a week, the return fare from Yarmouth being 9d!

Claremont Pier Lowestoft History

During the Inter-war years the Claremont was the Mecca for both summer visitors and saltwater anglers.  In 1940, with the Axis Forces sweeping across the continent threatening Britain, the Royal Engineers blasted a hole in the pier to stop the Luftwaffe using it as a possible landing place! The invasion threat passed and a Bailey Bridge was built over the gap and the pier became an army training area.

By 1948 the pier had been abandoned and had fallen into a state of disrepair, but it was given a new lease of life when it was taken over by George Studd, an actor. Mr Studd set to work on repairing what was left of the pier and making it attractive to holidaymakers once again. 

The Claremont Pier now boasts modern facilities including an award winning restaurant and a family-orientated amusement arcade and luxurious casino area. The latest additions include a large wooden floored roller skating rink and a plush and contemporary multi-purpose venue.
