South Parade Pier stands proudly in the centre of Southsea’s stunning 4 mile coastline with amazing unique views of the Isle of Wight and across The Solent. South Parade Pier has a very colourful and eventful history: it has been destroyed by fire 3 times, the most infamous being in 1974 during the making of the film ‘Tommy’; it was requisitioned during World War II for the preparation and embarkation of troops for the D-Day landings; and as an entertainment venue many famous names have performed there, including, Frankie Howerd, Peter Sellers, David Bowie and Genesis. After years of neglect, this much-loved Victorian structure has been restored to its former glory and is now fully open for the public to enjoy. (Portsmouth, England)
