After months of renovation work, the £4.2million Penarth Pier Pavilion is finally open to the public.

The new facilities inside the iconic Grade II Pavilion include a pop-up cafe and restaurant, a gift shop and a meeting room offering views of the Bristol Channel.

The pavilion was build in 1929 after the original wooden building burnt down. Over the years, it's been used as a dance hall, snooker room and gymnastics club.

A number of events will be held every Sunday through December to mark the opening of the pier pavilion.
