DID YOU KNOW THE HISTORY OF THE ROYAL THAI PIER ?
Designed by Edward L Stephens, the original pier cost £25,000, equivalent to more than £1.2m in today’s value.
The Royal Victoria Pier was opened on 8th July 1833 by the Duchess of Kent and her daughter, Princess (soon to be Queen) Victoria.
A pontoon was added in 1864 and seven years later railway lines were extended to a widened pier-head. Musicians performing open air concerts attracted huge audiences while hundreds of people idled away the day in deckchairs on the decking.
The railway reached the pier in 1871. Paddle Steamers departed from the pier for the Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands. A pavilion able to seat 1,000 people was built in 1894 with facilities to stage concerts, dramatic productions and dances.
In 1917, a train ferry service was set up from a temporary brick-built pier, operating to Dieppe three times a week, it carried supplies over to France. During World War 2. The Royal Pier was destroyed by fire in 1987, but the white Toll House, built at the entrance to the pier, still stands.0
