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.
Calling all West Pier lovers! Help fund the restoration of the sole surviving complete West Pier building.
We are restoring an original octagonal 1866 pier kiosk to reinstate on Brighton seafront close to its original site. This exquisite structure will be the oldest pier building in the world and the UK’s first seaside learning centre.
To raise funds, we are selling West Pier fragments and artefacts. Every item comes with a certificate of authenticity. As these pieces date back to 1866 or soon after, inevitably they show signs of wear and may not be completely perfect. Please get in touch if you would like to own a piece of Brighton’s history and contribute towards the restoration of this important building.
Please help us return this masterpiece to Brighton seafront in exchange for buying a unique piece of the finest pier ever built.
