Worthing Pier - Pier of the Year 2019

Worthing's Grade II listed Art Deco pier was named Pier of the Year by the National Piers Society in 2019, which described it as:

“Beautifully maintained by Worthing Borough Council”. 

Worthing Pier is now one of the few piers which has won the award twice in the 23-year running of the competition, having previously won in 2006.

The Mayor of Worthing, Cllr Paul Baker, said:

“I am delighted the National Piers Society has recognised what a fantastic pier we have down here in Worthing. It really is a beautiful and iconic landmark for the town, reviving so many great memories for people who have used it down through the years.

“What I particularly like about it is that it symbolises all that is classic about a traditional pier. It's not garish but elegant, you can see a great show there, take tea while enjoying spectacular views, have a nice meal, fish for your supper, or just take an evening stroll. What more could you want from a pier?”

President of the National Piers Society, Gavin Henderson, said:

“As a one time player in the town's Municipal Orchestra I am really pleased to give three cheers to Worthing Pier for all its historical significance and current glory.”
