In 1865, The Eastbourne Pier Company was formed with a working capital of £15,000 and work began in 1866. It was officially opened in 1872 by Lord Edward Cavendish.
300 metres long and built on stilts, Eastbourne Pier has had a varied history after sections were destroyed by storms and fires.
In 2015, Mr Sheikh Abid Gulzar a local hotelier bought the pier and has since renovated and re-painted it adding 20 new benches to the open deck area and providing entertainment for visitors.
