Eastbourne pier is a nice pier although it's currently under renovation. The very best it is the old fashioned tea rooms on the pier. These serve one of the very best cream teas I've ever had. Sandwich, cake, cream scone and tea or coffee for 2 for a total of £18. If your a cream tea fan and enjoy looking... More

It's really hard to judge the pier right now as it's clear that there is so much hard work going into the repairs after last year's devastating fire. But the entrance is still fully functioning with chippy and icecream parlour. The middle section if the pier is fenced off but you can still walk either side, or sit in the... More

Lovely Victorian pier undergoing a little renovation. Cute shops selling trinkets, handbags, jewellery. Places to eat and drink, great views of beachy head.

One of the most popular places in Eastbourne. It is being reconstructed after the fire in autumn 2014. Hope that soon it will be open

Loved this Pier much more than the one in Brighton... You can just sit here, look at the sea and enjoy the views...

Since the recent fire that destroyed the ballroom, the pier has been in dire straits, even after they added sidewalks and opened the buildings seaward of the fire. The flooring is replaced and the operators were hoping to have children' rides on it, but this was not allowed, so we will just have to wait until the ballroom is replaced... More

Sadly part of the pier was burned down, however I am delighted to report that it is being repaired. there is access to almost all of the beautiful pier. The pier has been kept quite traditional with no brashy amusements. There is plenty of free seating which was a delight.

2 cafes couple of little shops. It is undergoing a rebuilding project so maybe when it's finished it will be worth returning. Fish and chip shop at start of pier only ordered chips they weren't very nice!
