The Piers

The seafront promenade is supported by huge brick arches with a series of ramps and steps leading down to the beach. A wealth of light-hearted detail, from splendid decorative ironwork to delightful bandstands and shelters, sets the holiday mood which extends out to sea on the Palace Pier, popular for its entertainment and food and drink outlets. Only the elegant silhouette remains of the West Pier (1866), sadly damaged by fire and storms.
