Strange structure to see emerging from the waves. The skeletal remains of the west pier show what can happen when a pier becomes derelict. Iconic to photograph, sad to learn the history.

Worth to visit. I recommend to take pictures of it on the i360 (the British airways tower) or to watch it from the beach. It’s nice
