Lower Deck

Please note, following initial feedback from the structural survey on Deal Pier, we have taken the precautionary measure of temporarily closing the lower deck. The survey has identified that work needs to be done on the steps down to the lower deck, which will remain closed until work is carried out. The main part of Deal Pier remains open. Works will be carried out as soon as possible, and we apologise for any inconvenience.
