go on the pier at least twice a month, good for a stroll before or after a meal, spend a few pennies in the arcade and walk to the end of the pier to watch the people fishing perhaps they will catch more than a cold one day, and maybe have a cream tea in the tea rooms or a... More

We visited the pier several times during our 5 day holiday and were blown away by its beauty. Imagine our shock when we watched the Blue Room burn down in front of our very eyes. So sad, good luck Eastbourne with restoring this lovely building.

Just few days ago we enjoyed visiting this icon of southeast coats. Instead of another visit today, we have found the pier in fire, fortunately just part of it was destroyed. We joined many people on the beach observing Fire brigade in action (thank you very much for your effort!), with deep sadness of this. Hopefully will be rebuilt, but... More

One of Britain's great piers. It's clean and tidy and the sports bar cafe half way down has been refurbished and does hot and cold snacks, teas, coffees and alcohol. It's not a tacky pier..it's spacious and nice to walk along. At the end there is a fish tackle shop where you can hire a rod and try and catch... More

Eastbourne Pier is amongst the best I've visited with a choice of traditional eateries at the land end of the pier, followed by some quaint shops as you walk up it. There are a couple of amusement arcades which are obligatory to keep that traditional pier feel as well as places to pick up an ice cream or fish 'n'... More

Rainy days on the coast can pose a challenge to parents with young children. Eastbourne pier has a good sized soft play area plus ball pit. Very reasonable cost and no time limit for the day. There are some shops and food outlets on the pier. Yes it could do with some investment but we had fun and made the... More

This is a fine example of a Victorian pier which I rate as one of the best in the country. Take in the sea breeze as you admire the view of Eastbourne's magnificent front. Some parts of the upper floors were out of bounds. I too am disapointed to see arcades on piers but I suppose they contribute to the... More

The Eastbourne Pier leads the traveler into the sea just like this town and it's surroundings open the gates to the world of green hills and blue sky with magical sunrises and sundowns. The Pier and the seaside path in Eastbourne show the distinctive feature of the area: romanticism, tranquillity and coolness. Eastbourne and the close to it located ways... More

We went on the Pier a few times mainly for something to do during the day in order to kill a bit of time. There isn't an awful lot on there, apart from Fish & Chips, Icecreams (which are both all right), a handbag shop/clothing shop, gift shops, an amusement arcade (toilets at the rear - including a disabled toilet....
