Wonderful Pier, despite restoration work

If you visit Eastbourne, you'd be letting yourself down if you don't visit the pier. The cream tea in the Victorian Lounge is simply divine.

By award-winning writer and author TONY FLOOD If you don’t want to splash the cash on a foreign holiday, I can recommend an enjoyable break in three delightful English holiday resorts – Eastbourne, Lyme Regis and Felixstowe. There are a host of hotels overlooking the picturesque sea front in Eastbourne at affordable prices, offering excellent food and facilities, and there... More

I am a regular visitor to Eastbourne, as I have family living there, and have walked the seafront and pier many times but not since the fire until now. The pier reminds me of everything in our history from the time it was built and I have fond memories of taking my children along it. On Saturday I had a... More

Since the fire, the businesses have had alot to put up with, but all have responded well. A good mix of the usual pier attractions, but rumours are out that the owners now want to sell

I think it is well worth saving / helping as the young people love it, it is a lovely addition to the coastline.

Was being repaired after a fire but was still open.Is well kept and has seating all down the sides which was nice as no trying to find somewhere to sit. Few shops and places to eat, not really much for older kids.

There was a lot of new boardwalk work being undertaken which was looking really good. We were only there in the evening (8pm) but all the shops and eateries were shut. The nightclub at the end of the pier was almost full, with the bar next door completely empty. It seemed like a missed opportunity that strollers had nowhere to... More

This was a visit after many years and we enjoyed the visit very much. There was a designated fishing area, good refreshment places, gift shop and clothing sales. There was a small smoking area but we did not see anyone using it. The view of both sea and the seafront were splendid and we were pleased to be able to... More
