The Promenade popular with tourists and locals alike, is a pleasant level one and a half mile walk or run stretching from Constitution Hill (Craig Glais) in the north to the harbour and attractive new marina development in the south.
On a clear day various points along the promenade provide a view of Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa), Wales’ highest mountain as well as the Lleyn Peninsula and Bardsey Island (Ynys Enlli). The flags along the Northern section of the promenade represent the minority languages of Europe, followed by those of visiting countries on Castle Point and the European Union on South Marine.
During the season entertainment is often provided in the Bandstand which is situated in the middle of the curve of the prom. An enclosed paddling pool a little further along provides safe bathing for the young.
The Pier, 700 feet in length, was built in 1864. It was vastly improved in 1896 with the construction of the Pier Pavilion which was capable of seating 2000 people and was used for a wide variety of entertainment including ballet, pierrot troupes and concerts. In 1922 part of the walkway was covered over for use as a café, which soon attracted a large clientele. Today the pier is as popular as ever and currently houses an inn, a snooker club, an amusement arcade, a restaurant, a video hire shop, nightclubs and an ice cream parlour.
