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

A good backdrop to a day at the beach. No real reason to go out of your way to visit, but pretty if you're in the area.

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.

A fire broke out at the Brighton Pier around August 2014 and was mostly closed at nights. During the day, walk along the beach is good for photo opportunites, even the rusty shell of the pier during sunset

What a fun time we had here! Gran and grandad enjoyed the views whilst eating a stick of rock, the kids enjoyed the amusements and myself and the wife had a drink and relaxed. We will be back!

A rusty shell of the pier it once use to be, now used for photo opportunities, some great shots at sunset. A short walk along the beach from the main pier

I have been visiting Brighton Pier for many years now and I don't think its changed too much in that time. There are three different sections with arcade games and traditional sideshows where you can win prizes. They do still have the old 2p machines and 10p a go fruit machines so you don't have to spend loads. There are... More
