If this was the only pier in Brighton then one could see the point in it remaining. However as Brighton has a working pier in good condition this ruin seems a bit pointless. It is just tangled twisted girders sitting out to sea. It makes a good photograph but that is about all.

The West pier has nearly disappeared now into the sea, but it remains a Brighton landmark. With a beautiful backdrop of the sunset on one side and the Brighton Pier on the other its the perfect picture opportunity and a lovely place to kick back and grab a drink from one of the many bars.

It is a husk of a pier that did burn down many years ago . However worth stopping and taking in the view from the beach as it gradually succumbs to the elements . There are many a great picture available and this ghost of a pier seems to evoke a spirit of brighton. You can't go near it so... More

You cannot stroll along it, or even get to it without a helicopter, but as a photographer I love the stark beauty of what remains. Please leave it standing it is iconic.
