Burnham Pier

Burnham pier in Burnham-On-Sea Pier is one of the UK’s oldest illuminated seaside piers, built between 1911-1914. It is Britain’s shortest pier and could better be described as an Edwardian pavilion on concrete piles, although the claim can be outdone by Weymouth’s bandstand pier that was shortened rather than purposely build short.

The pier sits in the centre of the seafront and Burnham-On-Sea Main beach.
