Brighton Palace Pier is a pleasure pier featuring an amusement park located in Brighton, East Sussex, England, UK.


The pier was taken over by the Noble Organisation in March 1984. Since then, it renamed itself simply "Brighton Pier".

Noble Organisation put the pier up for sale in 2011, but withdrew the offer the following year. It was eventually purchased in 2016 by Eclectic Bars,[1] which subsequently became a subsidiary of the company which was renamed The Brighton Pier Group. The new owners announced that the pier would become Brighton Palace Pier once again. In 2018, the entrance sign was replaced to reflect the new name.
