Clacton Pier continues to provide a top quality visitor attraction for a fun day out, according to VisitEngland, which carried out a full day assessment of the landmark last month.
It concluded that the pier meets the high standards required for accreditation in the national scheme, an award the operator will hold for at least a two years before another inspection will be carried out.
“Clacton Pier delivered an enjoyable visitor experience providing an entertaining and fun day out,” said Ruth Bolton, who assessed the pier on behalf of Visit England. “The good range of rides, games, amusements and eateries appeal to the wide visitor profile.”
Billy Ball, managing director at the Pier, said he was pleased with the assessment which covered every aspect of the operation.
