There are several access points to the coast many have found that the perfect day can be found in just strolling through the many different sectors of the pier while stopping and resting at the many attractive stops along the way.

Those seeking to get away from the shopping part of the pier, the historical pier (also known as the North Pier) was built in the 1860s. The pier was originally intended to be a promenade, but as the years have progressed, so has the need for other attractions to be added to the pier.
