Brighton's West Pier
For almost a century and a half the West Pier has been Britain’s most iconic pier. Renowned for its wonderful architectural style, it has been visited and enjoyed by millions. Even today with its sculptural remains casting an eerie beauty over the seafront, the West Pier is still the most photographed building in Brighton.
Golden beginnings for new West Pier heritage centre
Work is underway for the development of a new promenade space which celebrates the West Pier and its history.
Opening this summer, the site, which lies east of BAi360, will feature a ‘Golden Spiral’ made up of salvaged West Pier columns.
Once restored, an original 1866 West Pier kiosk will also become a key feature of the scheme.
