Brighton Beach

Brighton Beach is the roughly 5 mile shingle beach within the city limits. Brighton's Palace Pier (Brighton Marine Palace and Pier) opened in 1899 and is an iconic structure on the beach.

The British Airways i360 is a newer arrival on Britain Beach near the site of the ruined West Pier.

The 160-metre tall observation tower opened in 2016, and as its name suggests, provides 360 degree views out over the sea as well as Brighton, the South Downs and the surrounding countryside inland. The same team behind the London Eye on the River Thames in London were behind the i360.

The Palace Pier (www.brightonpier.co.uk) has a number of rides and attractions from traditional fairground favourites like carousels and dodgems to more modern rides such as Galaxia and Turbo Coaster. There's a restaurant (the spiritual home of fish and chips) and a couple of bars on the pier.
