Brighton Pier

Madeira Drive, Brighton, East Sussex, BN2 1TW
Tel: 01273 609361     Email:

The Brighton Pier was built to replace the old Chain Pier. Designed by R St. Moore it took ten years to build, and the main section of the deck was finally opened in 1899. With its attractive oriental dome and delicate filigree ironwork arches, it is widely considered to be the finest pier ever built. Right from the beginning the pier seemed to have an atmosphere of carnival gaiety and cheeky frivolity. Here you'll find all the traditional amusements you'd expect, as well as fairground attractions, souvenirs and novelty shops. You can eat anything from candyfloss to freshly-caught crab and traditional fish and chips.
