The Brighton Marine Palace and Pier, which opened back in 1899, is a pleasure pier located in Brighton, England. Although it is usually called the Palace Pier, most of the people refer to it as the Brighton Pier.

The Palace Pier’s construction started back in 1891 and opened in 1899, at a cost of £27,000. It has since been witness to numerous historical events. It was closed down back during the Second World War and it was the place where summer shows with big stars were held during the 1970s. The pleasure pier has also suffered from a lot of damage including one that happened in 2003 although it was able to reopen the next day. The pier’s first ever structure, the Royal Suspension Chain Pier, had long fallen in a state of disrepair and was largely destroyed by a storm.

Brighton Pier’s rival, the West Pier, was closed in 1975 after not finding a suitable buyer who could keep up with its maintenance cost.
