Still developing but worth a trip to visit

Walked to from Hove and the walk into is not very impressive, but once in the selection of restaurants is, lots going on and more being added

I can't think why anyone would want to visit this large artificial harbour. On arrival you are greeted by a large car park outside a down-market supermarket. Along the dockside is a string of boring chain restaurants. On one pier is the world's ugliest building - looking like a string of oversize shacks, painted in white and garish yellow. It... More

Return visit after some five or six years ago. All the interesting shops seem to have gone and apart from a rather nice art gallery cafe it is cost cutters and a charity shop. Loads of the the usual chain restaurants and the fish restaurant was OK with quick service and reasonable fish menu. It was reasonably busy for the... More

Visited The West Quay, a J D Wetherspoon pub, in early May and were a little disappointed. The whole place has obviously been busy over the years and it feels very tired and somewhat shabby. Time for a freshen up in our minds. The staff in the upper bar were very stressed and were clearly short handed and the usual... More

It is a shame that the whole area looks rundown, and reminds me of a concrete jungle. It badly needs updating especially the car parking which is for this day and age extremely tight and restrictive, however as it is free for the first four hours it makes a nice change from the very expensive parking in the centre of...

went here in April and the weather was great. the place contains some shops, restaurants as well as a bowling alley, cinema and some side shows i.e crazy golf, trampolines and children's rides. Not much in the way of shopping so don't go out of your way to come here, there are as many places to eat as there are... More

Went this morning by bus (no 7) which takes you right in. Very clean, with shops and restaurants. Slightly sad because when we were there very few others were walking about. That could have been because of the weather (it was a bit chilly) or time time of day/year. Also perhaps it would be more lively in the evenings with... More

I regularly come here for basic shopping needs in the day, but hadn't been here at night in a long time. I strongly recommend avoiding it! Boy racers speed along the roads and car parks, and almost purposefully knocked my mother over! There is a horrible atmosphere from the drunks binge drinking in the Wetherspoon. It's such a shame that... More

Our bnb recommended we go but wish we hadn't. We could have been anywhere and couldn't even see the sea! It's billed as shopping, leisure, eating etc but it was boarded up shops, ghost town areas and a line of usual high street restaurants that you didn't need to go to the marina to eat at. We were very disappointed... More

Decided to visit Brighton Marina as we were down on the coast for the day to enjoy the Bank Holiday sunshine, we parked in the Asda car park at the main entrance to the Marina complex as it was free for three hours and we just wanted to have a quick look around the Marina development to see how good...
