Less than an hour South East from London by train, is one of the UK’s most popular destinations and one of the top 10 attractions in England outside of London. It’s Official Name Is Brighton Marine Palace and Pier. This pier was the third to be built and it had to be closed during the WWII to prevent it being used by enemy troops as a landing point for an invasion. Given its almost 2km length, it is not a surprise that it takes 3 months to paint the pier. And by night this sight is very different with the 60,000 lightbulbs that lights it up.
The only question I have is, if this officially is Brighton and Hove, how come the pier is not called the Brighton and Hove Marine Palace and Pier?
