Marine Court detail
Marine Court detail
Art Deco balcony detail of the upper floors at Marine Court. The windows on the balconies are a later addition, somewhat breaking up the form of the building. Being on the sea front the building is subject to excessive weathering and looks run down. Being such a large building it is not frequently painted.
Marine Court

Marine Court was completed in 1938 and is one of the first tower blocks in the UK, built upon a steel frame with reinforced concrete flat roofs. The Grade II listed fourteen storey Art-deco style building by Kenneth Dalgleish and Roger K Pullen was inspired by the Queen Mary ship completed in 1936. Upon completion it was the tallest block of flats in the UK.
The building contains shops, 153 self contained apartments and an under ground car park.
