Lovely old pier

Loved the old fashioned atmosphere and impressed with the way they are getting on with the restoration following last year's fire. Wish the shops opened earlier.

Eastbourne pier is a great sight as you near it along the promenade. Free to walk along to the end -the middle part is being repaired after severe fire damage but you are still able to walk to either side of this. Great views on a clear day with fishing aloud at the bottom for a small fee. Tea room... More

It was interesting looking thro the peepholes at the progress of the work. The Victorian restaurant serves very good tea with leaves rather than tea bags.

Lovely Victorian pier which sadly, was extensively damaged by fire last year. It's currently undergoing restoration, but is being kept open as far as possible. The high fences around the work-areas have holes cut out so people can peep through to watch the progress - nice touch! I love the freshness of the blue and white colour scheme, and the... More

Provides a good view of the shore although most shops were closed when we visited late in the day. Careful of where you step as some of the flooring is in need of repair.

What a shame, the pier Fire last year has really devastated what was a lovely old Landmark. But it is in the process of being restored now and hopefully it will be back to its former glory soon. It was interesting to be able to view some of this process through windows in the barriers. Lots of dangerous work going... More

A great shame, because it really is a wonderful structure which could be quite magnificent. Unfortunately it has, in part, become the sort of building which lends itself to the cheap side of sea side life. Nevertheless, there are hopeful signs of improvement. At the time of our visit there was quite a lot of building work going on.
