The Palace Pier is well loved by locals and visitors alike. This very special photograph shows how the pier was part of our seaside defences in WWII. The pier’s central decking was removed during World War II to prevent enemy landings to be possible. Here you can see the pier being repaired In September 1945, so that it could once more be ‘business as usual’.

Do you have any memories of the Palace Pier? How old were you when you first went on the pier? Or did you come to Brighton on a day trip – and loved it – even if it was raining?
