Not the end of the pier show

Really great to see Eastbourne pier being repaired after the fire damage. Lovely stroll, a good tea room, and some good shops. And free admission. Well done Eastbourne!

Major construction work going on to rebuild the burned down parts of the pier. Still, a landmark of Eastbourne. As most piers it offers gambling and overpriced crappy food and drinks. Even though its not very well maintained it is still a landmark of Eastbourne and definitely worth a visit, if only for the flair and scenery.

Really enjoyed a walk along the Pier, coupled with coffee and tea cake in the Victorian Tea Rooms. Interesting to see the workers rebuilding the part of the pier that was damaged last year.

The pier is under major refurbishment after last years fire, so to be fair we cannot comment too much, but what has been completed looked OK, it was a lovely long walk with stunning panoramic views. There are places open to eat and drink.

After a major fire last year, renovation looks like the Pier will be better than ever, when completed.

We took a stroll along the pier there are still some small shops open even though it is being restored after the fire last year. You can see were they have put down new wooden flooring.

Glad to see they are spending a lot of money restoring this lovely old pier. Certainly the focal point in this Victorian town and important keeping it up to date. They are laying beautiful new timber decking and making it a good place to visit. Will call back in the summer to see if they are finished. You are able... More

It would have been easy to allow Eastbourne Pier to decay after the fire that damaged it so badly a couple years back but the council took the brave step of investing in its restoration. I love the pier for its famous evening mumuration of starlings. There are still places to eat, buy souvenirs and have fun. And there's nothing... More
