“a travellers must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

An English pier....Brighton Pier. what a delight, may be a little brash with all the side shows and rides competing at the end of the pier, however the arcades and the fish and chips...a must and whats more the best make this a joy to do ...a must or you miss out on a Brighton tradition.

“Nostalgia Revisited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We went for a stroll along the pier midweek and it was not too busy then, with no queues for anything, unlike the weekend when it was heaving. There are interesting historical notes and photographs set out on boards and banners along the length of the pier. Lots of benches to sit and admire the view from, and it's worth taking your camera to capture these. Noisy at the far end where the fairground attractions are, but that's to be expected and my husband commented that the PA system was rather good (he's a bit nerdy that way) so not unpleasant to listen to.

Surprisingly, given its location, this was the cheapest place to buy cans of soft drinks that we found in Brighton - 80p instead of £1- £1.20 elsewhere.

“Bright & Bustling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Full of life, very busy, lots to do and see. No trip to Brighton is complete without a promenade down the pier. The Dolphin races are a must.

“Brighton pier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Lots of food places & arcades. Fair rides at the end of the pier. Nice stroll along the pier. Careful of the seagulls though! Didn't think much of the 2 bars we visited - Horatios - loud music & full of stag groups & Victoria's - not impressed with the draught cider.

“Nice long walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The deckchairs on the pier were free to use, so we sat on the pier for an hour in the sun reading the papers. Had a little dabble on the slot machines too!!
