Opened by Princess Victoria (just before she became Queen) in 1833, The Royal Pier has seen many facelifts and changes since it was built.

The pier re-opened in August 2008, Kuti’s Royal Pier is now home to the Royal Thai Pier on the ground floor and the Gatehouse Grill on the first floor, a licensed venue for wedding and civil ceremonies.



Your dream wedding at a royal venue, making it a memorable occasion.

Located by the sea front, providing a magnificent view of Southampton Water and easily accessible from all directions, being a few minutes from the M27 and Southampton Airport.

The Royal Pier is the dream location for any wedding. We also have great links with local 5 star hotels.


At Kuti’s Royal Pier we pride ourselves in making dreams come true. We understand a wedding can also be one of the most stressful times with so many priorities to manage.

We work to take that stress away from you, and make sure you, your family and friends leave with great memories.

The Royal Pier team have managed many weddings, and can take you through a checklist of things that need to be done in advance and provide you with ideas, or you can request a particular style for the wedding ceremony.
