The UK is home to some of the most impressive pleasure piers in the world, many of which are available for private hire. Events can take place above the sea on the pier itself, at historic piers such as Ryde Pier, built in 1813, or the popular Brighton Pier, an iconic construction with fantastic views. These are our favourite piers available for events.
Brighton Pier is a popular venue for private celebrations as well as corporate events. Event space is available at Palm Court restaurant, Horatio’s, Victoria’s or the Glitter Ball bar where a DJ can help the party go with a swing. In the summer sun there’s nothing nicer than a party on Brighton Pier. Contact us to find out about how you could host your event here.
Clevedon Pier is available for private functions, corporate events and commercial activities. Frequent requests include wedding celebrations, commemorations and parties, commercial photography and filming, art exhibitions, memorial and community activities. The Pagoda located on the Pier head can accommodate a maximum of 20 people for a sit down Wedding Supper or Breakfast, increasing to 25-30 for a buffet style meal.
