Still Band-Standing In Weymouth

After visiting the Pleasure Pier in Weymouth, my next stop of the day was a mile or so round the Bay to the Bandstand Pier. It is much truncated from its heyday, but still retains a little of its former Art Deco splendour.

Out front is a café and beach supplies shop which provided me with a tasty lemon tart and cuppa in a lovely seaside-themed mug.

A Circuit Around Clacton

My second pier of the day was a short drive from Walton – the neighbouring seaside resort of Clacton-on-Sea. The pier is somewhat shorter than Walton’s, and the indoor amusement arcade is a bit smaller – but there are a few more rides outdoors. The sun came out and there were some great clouds to be seen along the coast.

In the large restaurant at the pierhead, I chose a scone with jam to have with my tea for the cake on the pier experience here.
