Brighton Pier

The southern coastal town of Brighton has two piers.

Brighton's West Pier, opened in 1866, is England's finest seaside pier and the first one to be Grade I listed. Although closed since 1975 and since ravaged by the elements and a major fire, it has survived as a magical and enduring part of seaside England and an essential feature of the Brighton seafront.

The Palace Pier to the East remains open and attracts over three and a half million tourists each year, making it the most popular free tourist attraction on the South Coast of Great Britain.
