Admiralty Pier All-Night Fishing

The Admiralty pier is open for all-night fishing every Friday and Saturday night throughout the year night throughout the year The Admiralty Pier was found to be structurally unsafe after the Hurricane of 1987 and closed immediately. The Dover Harbour Board kindly agreed to lease the Pier. The Dover Sea Angling Association (founded in 1903) borrowed £180,000 in order to concrete the walkway, install safety fencing and have new posts cast to match the remaining still erect. Eventually the Pier was re-opened in 1989 and is now manned by DSAA staff. Ticket monies go toward the Pier Stewards wages for selling tickets, keeping the Pier clean, printing, refuse sacks, bleach, disinfectant, life belts and general maintenance often needed after storms.
