The original Llandudno pier was just 242 feet (74 m) long, built on 16 wooden piles and opened in 1858 by the St George's Harbour and Railway Company. It was severely damaged by a storm in 1859. The present pier, built for the Llandudno Pier Company by Walter Macfarlane of Glasgow using iron castings from the Glasgow Elmbank foundry, was opened to the public on 1st August 1877. The landwards extension past the Grand Hotel SH7882 : The Grand Hotel to the same design, still in deep water and also supported on iron columns, was opened in 1884.
