Entrance to Worthing Pier
Entrance to Worthing Pier
Designed by Sir Robert Rawlinson, Worthing Pier was opened on 12 April 1862. The pier originally was a simple promenade deck 960ft (291m) long and 15ft (4.6m) wide. In 1888 the pier was upgraded with the width increased to 30ft (9.2m) and the pier head increased to 105ft (32m) for a 650-seat pavilion to be built. It is a grade II listed building.
