Brighton Palace Pier

The pier features heavily in the show and can be seen in many of the promotional pictures for the show.

It is a Grade II listed pleasure pier located in the city centre opposite the Old Steine.

Opening in 1899, it was the third pier to be constructed in Brighton after the Royal Suspension Chain Pier and the West Pier, but is now the only one still in operation.

The pier is often used as a filming location and was featured in the gangster thriller Brighton Rock, the comedy Carry On at Your Convenience and the Who’s concept album and film Quadrophenia.

It was reported that in September 2020, leading man John Simm was spotted walking down Sydney Street in Brighton with a small crowd of extras and camera crew following.

According to local newspaper The Argus, shopkeepers said they were asked to temporarily remove signs about face masks and social distancing, as the drama is not set in the Covid-19 era.
