Completed in 1897, the Pier Hotel was built by John Waller Cockrell on the site of the old Anchor and Hope fishermen’s pub. It was part of a flurry of development in this part of Gorleston at the end of the Victorian era.

In 1896, while the hotel was under construction, the Beach Gardens and bandstand were set out in front of it, and a wooden promenade was built between the gardens and beach.

Gorleston’s distinctive brick-built lighthouse was constructed a decade earlier in 1887, and the Pavilion Theatre opened in 1901. Both are now Grade II listed buildings.

The Pier Hotel - established in 1897
Gorleston today is largely unspoiled. A short distance from the Pier Hotel is a parade of caf├ęs and shops selling souvenirs and beach goods, including boats to sail on the yacht pond.
The upper and lower promenades are very flat, making them ideal for effortless walking or jogging.
