Solicitor in Clacton-on-Sea
The large town of Clacton-on-Sea is situated in the Essex county in England and it is a popular place for tourists to visit during the summer months and one of its great attractions is the Clacton Pier. It has existed for well over a hundred years and has gone through many changes throughout its history. Clacton Pier was the first building completed in Clacton-on-Sea and was opened on 27 July 1871. It was originally used as a point for ships to dock and drop off goods and passengers who would come for a day trip.
Entertainment facilities were added to Clacton Pier in 1893 and the pier was also lengthened to 360 metres. The pier was bought by Ernest Kingsman in 1922 but wasn’t changed much until 1994 when the Harrisons family bought the pier from the Kingsman family and began to modernise the pier and attract a more modern crowd. They were successful in their attempts and turned the Clacton Pier into a popular amusement park with rides dotted throughout the pier to enjoy. Before the change, Clacton Pier was a sleepy and relaxing spot that was on the decline so it has been quite a transformation. There are still pleasant spots around the pier though for those that want to unwind after enjoying the amusement park. There are a total of 13 rides on the pier with some that are suitable for younger children. Rides range from traditional dodgem cars and waltzers to modern state of the art thrill rides.
In addition, there is a Sea Aquarium at the pier where you can get see all sorts of marine wildlife and learn about the range of species that can be found around the Clacton Pier. There are fresh water and tropical fish including a real life ‘Nemo’ at the aquarium, the fearsome red bellied piranhas and the smooth hound shark that has recently given birth. Lastly, there is an amusement arcade which has everything from traditional fruit machines to modern immersive arcade games and a ten-pin bowling alley.
