For me I have seen it and won’t go again. Having said that it’s great for families with lots to do to keep the kids entertained but your need to take plenty of cash as it won’t be cheap.

Was what we expected had a fair ground at the end but the rides seemed expensive but it was well worth the walk

In the fading light with a bit of sunset left in the western sky, I saw several people in the space of ten minutes taking selfies with this iconic ruin as the backdrop. Shame it couldn't be restored but it remains there to remind us...More

We wanted to visit this pier and although very nice, it is definitely meant for young family's or teens. Nothing romantic about the walk on this one.

The remains of the West Pier make for a stunning photo opportunity, particularly at sunset. However, don’t just take photos, it’s worth researching the fantastic history of the pier in all its glory!

The question needs to be more clear. I have no idea what she's asking about what room.

Did not walk on it. Can see wreckage out in the water. You can walk on new Brighton Pier which has lots of attractions and eats.

As John it would be a very wet tea! The pier is derelict now just a shell, currently building a viewing tower on sight. If you want a cream tea, try the Grand Hotel nearby.
