My hotel room overlooked the pier and I visited it one bracing November day. Since it was out of season nothing was open on the pier but it is a fine piece of Victorian engineering and the ability to walk out over the sea brought back many childhood memories.

It looks like they are trying to renovate this pier (evidence of some recent activity at the entrance) and it really needs it. There is literally nothing to recommend it, peeling paint, half of it closed off, all the lamps burnt out by a previous fire and not replaced yet. Avoid.

We had a little walk along the very short pier well stopping in Eastbourne. Could do with a lot of work doing to it. Only a few shops at the beginning of the pier a little coffee shop in the middle and a night club at the end that's it.. could do with adding a few more bits to it... More

Good to see the pier restored - well done Eastbourne Council. Large area of space free of gambling slot machines to be commended - hope it stays that way

We visited at 17.00 and the place was empty. It was really dark so you had to be careful where you walked the Victorian tea rooms were completely empty, no surprise as it lived up to its name, very dated. If you want to go to a night club then visit here if not don't bother.

A great example of a seaside pier , there is food and drink available on the pier. There is some restoration work being carried out but it doesn't detract from the experience

Went for a stroll before dinner . A fantastic piece of Victorian architecture at its finest. A must visit even in the evening. They had great music playing over the sound system

Well worth a visit on the pier is the Victorian Tearoom which serves a delicious Cream Tea of scones, jam and cream plus tea brewed from tea leafs and not from a teabag! Spoil yourself.
