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.

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

If only the West Pier still looked like the main photo. Unfortunately due to arson, mismanagement and neglect it is a marooned superstructure. I've rated it very good because you still get great starling 'murmurations', evocative sunsets and - occasionally - good surf next to it. What a pity that it couldn't be rebuilt instead of having to put up... More

A remnant rusty shell of the previous Brighton Pier which burned down after years of neglect. It lies within viewing distance of the present Brighton Pier and is used largely for artistic photographs these days
