The Brighton Marina was built during the 1970′s. The huge concrete supports were made on the site and put in place by a giant crane which was also made on the site. The main parts of the structure were finished by 1977 and it was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in May 1979.
It’s now one of the largest leisure boat marinas in Europe. As well as the boating harbour there are houses, shops, restaurants, an hotel, a casino, a cinema and a gym. There are opportunities for sailing, boat trips, diving, fishing and bowling.
It covers an area of about 127 acres or 0.51 km
Brunswick Developments owns the Marina.
A Sea Jet service once ran from the Marina to Dieppe in France -it was between 1979 and 1980.
