A super place to spend an hour, or to while away the day. The pier has everything for all tastes and ages. Wonderful view of Coast from Beachy Head to Isle of Wight .Rest, drink, eat and watch world go by for free.

The pier has arcades, amusements, food stalls which can be pricey but the walk on the pier with views of Brighton is a must.

We didn't spend any money at all just strolled along the pier and back soaking up the atmosphere on a sunny Monday April afternoon - delightful! A real break from the stress and strains of the usual working week. Can't recommend it highly enough

You can't go to Brighton and not go on the pier! Free to enter. The usual selection of arcades and games, plus rollercoasters/rides for the adventurous, but also free deckchairs to use and plenty of nice places to get snacks or food (milkshakes, fresh crepes, bars, fish and chips etc). A good mix of ages, and a relaxed feel. Worth... More

This is not the worst place in Brighton but not far off it. Over crowded, over priced & noisy. Ok if you want that sort of thing but on the whole it's a rip off.

It was lovely to walk up and down the pier, it needs to be done when visiting Brighton. Lots of attractions including themed rides and arcade games - however, you will spend a fortune when taking advantage of these. I think it was £4 pp. to ride the Ghost Train? The donuts were also quite disgusting and £4.50 for 5... More

Shame such an iconic landmark has come to this. The once great Palace Pier is now just a shadow of its former self. Re-titled the Brighton Pier its a run-down & shabby destination for disappointed tourists.
