Worthing’s Grade II Listed Art Deco pier has been voted the best in the UK for 2019.

Members of the National Piers Society have chosen it as the winner of the award for the second time.

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.’

The pier, which opened in 1862 and was originally designed purely as a landing stage, was sold to the council in 1920.
