The Seaside Pier is a well loved feature of many resorts. Some of them had a railway line running to the end initially to move luggage from steamers - then passengers. This DVD takes a look at piers around the country and features film of these still operating and those that have passed into history. Extensive sequences on Ryde, Southend, Hythe, Southport and film of Walton, Ramsey & Blackpool's North Pier.

Some piers had wooden scenic railways on or near by, and miniature railways. This DVD features vintage film footage of wooden roller coasters at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Redcar (the short-lived Giant Racer), Wonderland at Cleethorpes, Clacton Pier (the magnificent Steel Stella) and the Folkestone switchback railway. Rare film also shows piers suffering from fires and drifting ships.
