Study: Almost half of Brighton have never visited Palace Pier Brighton News

It has been revealed that a surprisingly small number of people in Brighton have visited one of our city’s proudest attractions.

A study by the GetYourGuide booking platform found that people in the UK are more likely to return to a foreign holiday destination than to visit a UK landmark or attraction.

The average person has visited eight countries outside the UK, and more have visited the Eiffel Tower (35%) than Brighton Palace Pier (26%).

With another dirt summer at home looking likely to most, Jo Fennel says it’s the best time to explore the exciting sights on our doorstep.

Less than half of people living in the UK said they had visited Buckingham Palace and 78% had never seen Stonehenge with their own eyes.
