This pier suffered a fire recently and the amusement arcade burnt down the work to restore it is being done. But the end of the pier is still intact and now that part of the pier is again open to the public. There are still attractions on the pier and it was an enjoyable visit.

Eastbourne had a really lovely pier,but unfortunately the front part of the pier burnt down about a month ago, (all in the press etc), but lucky the rest of the pier was okay, so you can still take a stroll on the pier, while the main front part is rebuilt. Eastbourne itself, is good if you can walk and leave... More

I stayed in EastBourne over the weekend and did the usual sights. The pier has just reopened and is accessible again after the fire. Not much to see at the moment but it will be back to its best soon I hope,

The pier reopened while we were in Eastbourne and we had to take a walk up to the end. The work they have done is excellent in such a short time. I can't wait to see it when it is completely renovated. Such a tragedy that it was burnt!

A place with great landscapes that makes you feel into another time. The proposal for a pier was first mooted at the end of 1863, and highly favoured by the town’s major landowner, the 7th Duke of Devonshire

Brings back great memories for all the family. Love the place and I hope to return here regular for the rest of my life as it's where my family grew up. Great place and it will always hold somewhere dear in my heart. Hope that it is refurbished elegantly though

My wife and I have walked along this pier many times and it was very distressing to see it burnt out and closed yesterday. This is one of the great piers on the South Coast from an architectural point of view and one of the main attractions of Eastbourne. When it has been repaired I will be back again to... More

go on the pier at least twice a month, good for a stroll before or after a meal, spend a few pennies in the arcade and walk to the end of the pier to watch the people fishing perhaps they will catch more than a cold one day, and maybe have a cream tea in the tea rooms or a... More

We visited the pier several times during our 5 day holiday and were blown away by its beauty. Imagine our shock when we watched the Blue Room burn down in front of our very eyes. So sad, good luck Eastbourne with restoring this lovely building.

Just few days ago we enjoyed visiting this icon of southeast coats. Instead of another visit today, we have found the pier in fire, fortunately just part of it was destroyed. We joined many people on the beach observing Fire brigade in action (thank you very much for your effort!), with deep sadness of this. Hopefully will be rebuilt, but... More
