Entrance to the Pier

Brighton's famous Palace Pier stretches out 1722 feet into the English Channel, and features rides and attractions at the end of the pier.

The pier was originally opened in 1899 and is now a Grade II* listed structure. At one time Brighton boasted three piers, but the Palace Pier is the only one still in operation.

It originally featured a theatre, although this was removed in the mid-eighties following its fall into disuse after storm damage several years previously. The theatre site is now home to the pier's rides and domed amusement arcade.

Palace Pier's major rides include two rollercoasters, a log flume and haunted house, along with a number of flat rides and traditional carnival attractions such as a carousel and a helter skelter.
