Although the pier has been burnt it is interesting to see how they are getting along with the restoration. We took our little grandson to see how it was coming along ad he was fascinated to see the men cutting the metal work to get it down. Look forward to seeing it finished. At the moment you are unable to... More

Yes it had parts burnt down and was being repaired but most of the pier was still active. Enjoyed the English tea house. Tea and scones we enjoyed.

The July 2014 fire on Eastbourne Pier put it in the global spotlight. I sat on the beach and watched the flames consume the amusement arcade in the middle of the pier. Just five months on, the town and the pier owners have moved heaven and earth to re-open the pier and ensure it will be an even better place... More

I liked the peep holes that let visitors see inside the burnt part of the pier as its interesting to see or imagine how it must have been before. It is possible to still enjoy a lovely walk around the burnt part at the start and the rest of the Pier has amazing views of the beach and seafront especially... More

This is a lovely pier- as pretty as Southwold. We feared it would be closed after the fire, but you can walk around the gutted shell at the shore-end and there are clever peep holes at adult and child levels so you can see the extent of the damage. The shops and cafes are still open for business and you... More

You cannot go to a seaside with a Pier and not walk it. So we did and although sad to see the remnants of the fire, it was interesting to be able to peer in and see what stage things were at, it didn't spoil the walk.

The scenary and the town is absolutely beautiful. It has this air of old Britain, white boardwalk, old wooden buildings and very friendly people. And of course you have the English Canal right in front of you:-)

Great to be able to get onto the pier even though it has been partially destroyed by fire. Good to see the work in progress and be a part of it's history.
