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.

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....

You will need plenty of money for the amusements if you have kids in tow but it is a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by, eat icecream, rock or candyfloss and relive your childhood memories.
