When the West Pier opened in 1866, it was the most magnificent pier that had ever been built.
Its architect, Eugenius Birch, designed 14 piers altogether, and this was his masterpiece.
Time, however, has not been kind to the grand old lady. Storms, neglect and two arson attacks have left the pier a burnt out shell. The people of Brighton still feel great affection for this iconic landmark, though.
And at sunset the starlings come and pay tribute to her by performing their magical murmurations.

Brighton has had three piers in its time, and Palace Pier (as it was originally called) was the third to be built, in the late 1800's.
In the 1930's the end was extended to make room for dodgem cards and a ferris wheel. Even though it has suffered storms, partial collapse and even a fire, Brighton Pier is still providing traditional British seaside fun for all of the family, and is carefully patrolled by a flock of chip loving seagulls.
Madeira Terrace is the covered iron walkway that runs the 1km length of Madeira Drive.
It was built by Phillip Lockwood, toward the end of the 1800's. The terrace was used for promenading in inclement weather, and provided a perfect viewing point for spectators of 'The Brighton Run' and speed trials.
Sadly, it has now fallen into a tragic state of disrepair, and was fenced off in 2018. Local people are trying hard to find ways to save this precious piece of Brighton history.
When George IV was Prince Regent, he employed the famous architect John Nash to turn a modest lodging house into this ornate royal palace, where he entertained his fashionable friends in lavish style.
A century later, during World War 1, The Pavilion had a bizarre change of use. It became a hospital for wounded Indian soldiers. Nowadays, it is open to the public, and everyone is able to marvel at this sumptuous monument to decadence.
The Grand Hotel was built in 1864 to accommodate the upper classes who had started to visit Brighton by train for its healthy sea air.
The salty sea water was said to be of particular benefit (whether you bathed in it or drank it), and each room in the hotel was equipped with three taps: one hot, one cold and one sea water! This was supplied directly from the pump room below, which is now a chilled out beachside cafe.
The helter skelter has been a part of Brighton palace Pier since the 1950's. Every morning the slide was polished with beeswax to make it more slippery, and children slid down it on scratchy mats made out of coconut husks. During a storm in 1973, a barge crashed into the pier and the helter skelter fell into the sea. This is its replacement, built soon after. In an ever-changing world, it still stands proudly as an icon of traditional seaside fun.

The i360 is Brighton's brand new observation tower, built on the site of the old West Pier.
It was designed by Marks Barfield Architects, the same team that created the famous London Eye, and there is no other building quite like it in the world. A glass pod, carrying up to 200 passengers at a time, gently glides up to a height of 138 metres. From there, the views of the sea, the city and South Downs are amazing.
If you manage to catch a light at sunset, you are in for a real treat!
The North Laine is the area between Brighton Station and the Pavilion. In the 1970's it was nearly all demolished and turned into a concrete flyover, but locals campaigned to save it, and it became a conservation area. Lots of little independent, creative businesses sprung up, often with an ethicalvibe. This gave the streets a friendly and liberated feeling that inspires millions of visitors every year.
The Theatre Royal was built in 1807 for the Royal Prince. By the end of the century it had become a commercially successful theatre, which was famous for having a 'gulp bar' backstage. In true Brighton fashion, actors could have a swift swig of alcohol between scenes!! The theatre is beautiful inside and out, and during the May festival, some of the best street entertainers in the world come and thrill the crowds in front of it.
The Pavilion Gardens are an oasis in the middle of buzzing Brighton, and the perfect place to seek refreshment during the day. The gardens have been open to the public since 1850, and were designed by John Nash in the 'picturesque' style. They have recently been restored to their Regency splendour, and attract all kinds of colourful wildlife!
This unique concertina card features a panoramic picture of the West Pier, drawn as it was 100 years ago.
It is as historically accurate as possible and features all kinds of aquatic entertainers and details from the time. It would make an impressive card for anyone who loves the West Pier, and wishes it were still here.
