Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / East Sussex / Brighton and Hove / Brighton / Brighton Palace Pier
Spend a sunny day at Brighton Palace Pier, home to numerous rides, attractions, food stalls, and bars. The historic pier combines entertainment, shopping, and dining to attract millions of visitors each year. This pier originally opened in 1899 and went through a number of expansions and redevelopments. Most recently, in 2006, two famous thrill rides were shipped to the pier from Italy. The Booster, arguably the site’s most popular ride, allows visitors to experience nearly 3 G's in less than 3 seconds, rotating 360 degrees before plunging back down. You can choose from a wide range of food options at the pier, including hot dogs, fish and chips, and seafood. Check online for special offers.

Brighton Palace Pier reviews
My first amusement park experience here in UK and it did not disappoint. Rides were disinfected every after use. Worth the money. And there was no queue when we went more »
Looks nice from the outside. Isn't nice in the inside. Guaranteed 100% not covid secure. No one was wearing masks in the acrade. Wood was breaking along the pier. Imagine it's good for a laugh but... more »
Tongue in cheek tacky but that is what one wants when visiting the beach. Its all the fun of yesteryear washed down with fish and chips and donuts. more »
This is one of the better seaside piers. A lot of things going on. By far it's best attribute is the fish & chip shop at the entrance to the pier. It was the best fish dinner I've had at any seaside chippy anywhere. Served fresh and hot. Top quality fish and served in a strong bag so that seagulls can't see what you are eating. It was also a very competitive price. I would strongly recommend that you try it.
It's definitely a great tourist attraction, in a very beautiful location, just by the sea. Perfect spot for taking nice pictures and having a good time, there is also a variety of games and themed carousels available, for both children and adults. You can find lots of shops to buy either food or souvenirs. Beware of the seagulls! They're quite cheeky and can steal your food right from your hands
Great way to amuse and refresh yourself and the family for a few hours with coin operated amusement machines, rides, snacks & restaurants (with some vegetarian options). No entrance fee to pay but costs can add up quickly if you are not careful. Good parking nearby but you will need to use the app or the website to pay as there are no longer any pay and display machines. We could not get the app to work but the website allowed a smooth payment.
It was such an amazing place! With restaurants, bars, places to get ice cream, donuts and all the things kids love (and adults too). It also has lot of games and fair rides, which you can get on for a fee (all day ride of £25, not bad). It is also free to enter (big plus) considering the views are amazing!! Will definitely visit again
Great Attraction for families. Has lots of food cabins with many kinds of foods. The atmosphere is fantastic with seagulls and the sea waves. The fair with the betting machines is very unique and dazzling. A Great place to hang and It's close to the city center and the British 360 degrees amusement action and you can see pretty much the entire city and the sea shore.
