Harbour Arm

Brief description

The stone pier is known as the harbour arm and was built between 1812 and 1815.  The lighthouse at the end of the pier was rebuilt in 1955. The Harbour Arm has a bar, cafés and galleries which are open daily during the summer months. Please check their individual websites for winter opening times.
