Brighton
West Pier

West Pier opened
5 October 1866
 
Storms in 1987 and 1988 caused damage to a section, isolating the Concert Hall & pavilion.
Storms in 2002 and 2003 caused part of the pier and concert hall to collapse.
In March 2003, the pavilion and sections were destroyed by a large fire. In May 2003 a further fire reduced the concert hall to a shell, falling into the sea during a later storm.
 
2016 - The i360 tower has opened at the old entrance to the pier.
