Brighton has had three Piers – from East to West, these have been the Chain Pier, the Palace Pier, and the West Pier.

Of these three, only the Palace Pier is still standing.

Brighton's five piers?

If we are willing to stretch a point, we can add two more to the list:

  • Brighton's "Daddy Long-Legs" was billed as a seagoing electric railway, but its appearance and construction (and use for sight-seeing) arguably made it more of a mobile tracked pier section than a railway carriage. The project engineer later went on to work on the Palace Pier.
  • The i360 sightseeing tower, which is planned to be built on the base of what used to be the West Pier, has been described as being a vertical implementation of the pier concept.
