This is what we are about

The Palace Pier.
Located in the heart of Brighton and Hove’s eight miles of beautiful coastline, the Palace Pier is acknowledged to be the finest Pier ever built. A much loved cultural icon, this Grade 2 listed, Victorian Pier is said to be the most visited tourist attraction outside London, with 4.5 million visitors a year. It has something for everyone - fairground rides for the children and great bars and restaurants for the grown ups. Walking the 1700 foot length of its wooden deck, you will literally have history under your feet. And now, for the first time in the Pier’s famous 120 years existence, you too can become a part of that history! By telling your personal story through a Decksquare.

Decksquares are beautiful, mirror-polished brass plaques, artfully inscribed with personal messages celebrating life, love and laughter, and (within reason!!) everything in between! They will be recessed into the surface of the teak deck and act as a long lasting legacy to an exciting moment in someone’s life, or in the life of someone they know. Possibly in memory of a much missed pet! They can be bought as a gift or individually. And each one raises precious funds for cancer research and a wonderful local children’s charity!

The plaques are set into the deck around the edge of the pier, so your plaque won't be trampled on by millions of feet. If you have a favourite spot on the pier, and wish to have your plaque set there, please let us know. We will do all we can to accomodate your wish
