At a cost of £2,600 the new Bournemouth Pier was opened by the Lord Mayor of London in August 1880
Consisting of an open promenade, it stretched to a length of 838 ft (255.4 m) and spanned some 35 ft (10.6 m) across the neck of the pier, extending to 110 ft (33.3 m) at the head.
Two extensions, in 1894 and 1909 respectively, took the pier’s overall length to more than 1000 ft (304.8 m). The theatre on the pier closed in 2014 and it was converted in to an all year all weather activity attraction ‘RockReef’
