Clevedon Pier is a seaside pier in the town of Clevedon, Somerset, England on the east shore of the Severn Estuary. It was described by Sir John Betjeman, as "the most beautiful pier in England".
The pier was built during the 1860s to attract tourists and provide a ferry port for rail passengers to South Wales. The pier is 312 m (1,024 ft) long, supported by steel rails covered by wooden decking, with a pavilion on the pier head.
 
The pier projects from the seafront at Clevedon into the Severn Estuary, which separates South West England from South Wales
