A last chance to see the Lady who walks on water

Sadly the West Pier is now just a skeletal ruin..... But how beautiful it still remains. Mostly it makes you wish you could have seen it just 20 years ago in it's full beauty.

A great FREE attraction. Lots for everyone of all ages, from great fairground rides and toffee apples, for the youngsters, to a good bar serving amazing fish and chips with free deckchairs for the older generation.

You can't miss it when you go to Brighton beach. It's now one of the land marks of this amazing city. Let's hope the weather doesn't ruin it anymore

Known this pier for many years, such a shame it has not been restored, way too late now as not much of it left.

You can only look at the remains of this Grade One Listed pier now and the day will come when even the small amount that is left will have crumbled into the sea. In its day it would have been a lovely place on which to promenade. My grandfather was the chief joiner here during the 1920s. The pier was... More

Such a pity this pier burnt down a good few years ago and there isn't the money available to bring it back to life. Was such a lovely place and very popular back in its day. Make for some good dramatic pictures against sunrise/sunset. It's a pity seeing this being reclaimed by the sea.

While the day we went was wild and windy the Pier was quite busy with relaxed, happy people simply enjoying the outdoors beezes, lashing seas and general 'fun of the fair' on the pier. We loved the walk all around and could see myself doing it daily of I was there longer.
