A must to do in the summer

In the summer it is buzzing on here and it is nice to just go and have a drink and sit and people watch. Good place for the children to spend there pennies on the arcades.

This landmark will probably mean more to people who visited the west pier when it was intact as now there is a burnt she'll of what it was to see. There are talks about various people purchasing the pier and renovating it but nothing has been set in stone.

You may be disappointed if you are expecting an end of pier cabaret show or candy floss stalls as it is mostly closed now but you can sit on the beach and imagine how things were back in Victorian times.

This pier kinda of reminds me of Huntington Beach only classier and older. There are tons of penny arcade games and people just kinda hanging out, its a nice walk to get there from pretty much anywhere.

It appears some people get the West Pier mixed up with Palace Pier ... The West Pier is now a burnt out skeleton standing alone a few yards from the beach ... However it can provide a great backdrop for photographs especially at dawn/dusk..

Somehow the fact that a rusting old ruin should be left to simply get washed by the waves has turned what was once a sad failure of neglect into a powerful anti-monument. Of course you can't really visit the place but it's always there as an off shore landmark... at least till the next big storm washes the last bits... More

The iconic remains of the West Pier. You can see this from the Beach there is a nice café opposite and there is a children playground with water play areas next to this. Along this end of the prom there are usually stalls selling anything from sun hats to art works.

From far it has a spooky present but once you step inside it becomes a wonderland of games, snacks and rides! A piece of Brighton's history, it is a must to see!
