Rhyl Pier was a very popular tourist attraction, with entertainments and carnivals a regular feature. In July 1894, the Prince & Princess of Wales visited Rhyl and were entertained to a special concert in the Grand Pavilion.

A school-girl described her visit to Rhyl Pier in 1899: ‘Many and varied are the scenes and amusements which present themselves to the hundreds of pleasure-seeking visitors to Rhyl in summer.’

Her favourite attractions included the ‘Pierrots’, a ventriloquist, palm-readers, and ‘the Flying Lady’.
