Palace Pier is a 1,722ft long Victorian pier, located in the heart of Brighton and Hove’s 8 miles of coastline.

With our famous fish and chip restaurant, a range of hot food and drink concessions, fairground attractions, two arcades, plus Brighton’s biggest indoor soft play area - ‘Palace Play’ - Brighton Palace Pier makes it a day to remember!

Brighton Palace Pier is also making some incredible improvements to Palm Court Restaurant and its two neighbouring bars – Horatio’s and Victoria’s. Whilst offering an entirely new, modern yet authentic look, the refurbishment will also be increasing the capacity for all three venues by almost double - allowing room for bigger conferences and events. Not to mention the new and improved menu options!

All three of our venues offer bespoke packages that can be tailored to suit any event, including exclusive hire, private entertainment, parties, corporate events, weddings and more. Each venue offers its own unique experience. From a three-course sit-down meal with sea views - limitless buffets - to authentic take-away boxes that can be enjoyed anywhere on The Pier! Additionally, Brighton Palace Pier is now offering exclusive hire of the end of The Pier. This is including all rides, all sideshows and any or all the food & drink concessions you wish!

Please enquire for more details.

With the combination of the new and improved venues, along with the unlimited rides wristbands available for all customers, Brighton Palace Pier is offering an even more unforgettable experience for 2018 and beyond!

Furthermore, Brighton Palace Pier has now opened Brighton’s biggest indoor soft play area - Palace Play!

Palace Play is a fantastic indoor, four-story, multi-purpose soft play area for children of all ages. The area contains a toddler area in which parents can sit - plus there will be a brand-new café for parents to relax and have a coffee while the kids are having fun. The indoor Dome building boasts over 50 arcade and gaming machines including air hockey, dance mats and multiplayer games.
