Your wedding venue
Opened by Princess Victoria (just before she became Queen) in 1833, The Royal Pier has seen many facelifts and changes since its build. It would hold dancing and exhibitions right up until the Great War. With its distinctive iconic Georgian architecture, its beautiful white façade and the grand dome referred to it as the “wedding cake’’ has remained a familiar part of the local landscape ever since.
Re-opened in August 2008, Kuti’s Royal Pier is now home to the Royal Thai Pier on the ground floor and the Gatehouse Grill on the first floor, a stunning venue for dining, events, and parties and a licensed venue for weddings and civil ceremonies.
