Transcript Of Narration
Clarence Pier is located just a bit further along the coast to the east. The pier was built in 1861 and was opened by the Prince and Princess of Wales who attended a concert. Up until 1873 a tramline ran from Portsmouth Town Railway Station onto the pier and was used for taking passengers to the Isle Of Wight onboard steamers.

In 1905 the Pier was extended to take extra boat traffic into account and still further extensions were made in 1932 when a café, sun deck and hall were added. After being bombed during World War II the pier re-opened in its present form on 1st June 1961.

Clarence Pier offers many different rides including; Disko Ride, Pirate Petes, the twister, wild river, the power tower, dodgems, skyways, waltzer, formula 2000, gallopers, tea cups and toon town express. The pier also offers amusement arcades featuring the latest video games and fruit machines. For more information about the pier and its attractions have a look at www.clarencepier.co.uk.
