what would we do without a Pier?

Essential visit in any sea side place. Pleasant, enough of little speciality shops and restaurants. Even in the strong wind but bright sun it was a pleasure to walk there.

If you have time to get away for a day, Eastbourne - not too far but one of the best places to walk from town by the coast to Beachy Head. AMAZING VIEWS!!!!

Used to come here a lot with the kids, then grandkids. Was away the day of the fire, had actually been on the beach the previous day. My Daughter rang me. Still go to visit the few remaining shops Why does no-one put sprinklers on these old wooden structures. The Grandkids loved the soft play area upstairs and playing the... More

Good view of coast line from pier. Although a large part was destroyed by fire in March 2014 restoration is well under way and it is possible to walk to the end. Due to time of year all shops and kiosks were not open but the view of the coastline was excellent

Good pier (although not functioning last year because of the fire). Only thing I don't like is the loud music you have to put up with. This pier and Brighton's!

Due to the fire damage the centre at the front of the pier is under going major work but you can still walk around the sides to the pier café ( for a coffee) and the shops and amusements are still trading.

Never miss a chance to wander round a pier. Loved the fairy lights and the architectural detail of the sadly closed camera obscura. The pier looks beautiful from the beach at sunset. We visited early evening and had a very pleasant walk.

What a shame that the pier is so sad at present. Hopefully when we next visit the restoration will be well underway. I have marked it very good because I am sure it will be.
