Delightful, well painted and really charming. I didn't have one, but I heard the cream ties on the pier are amazing!

We strolled along the pier with the baby in the pram. There is a very interesting looking Victorian tea room, which we did not have time to enjoy. The very small selection of arcade games were good fun for a few minutes. We then stopped in the bar on the end for a quick drink, but there was very limited... More

Walked to the end and back on a cold and windy February day. Not much to see except worn out benches, naff shops and stalls. Blows the cobwebs away. Highlight though if you're a fan of the film 'Big' there is a Zoltar machine at the entrance but sadly no plug to pull out to make a wish come true!

The pier does not have a lot you can do, but we found a gem of a place at the end of the pier: it's a jazz club but was open late afternoon when we arrived and we found it served good coffee. Great retro ambiance too. What a find !

We visited the pier for the first time since the fire and it looks great. I like the golden dome etc and all the usual shops, arcades etc are to be found here.

We stayed at the Queens Hotel opposite to the Pier and this was our first visit to Eastbourne. The Pier is kept so neat and tidy with plenty of seating available for all and a good selection of shops/restaurant's. The fish and chips smelt devine but we headed off for afternoon tea (see review). Plenty to occupy all available on... More

First time on The Pier. Very bracing and you get a sense of time when you stroll down the Pier A few nice shops and I had fish on the pier

I think for someone born and bred in the U.K. a pier isn't anything special for most at least, it needs something to bring it alive. Not for people that haven't grown up with piers or in the U.K. (myself included) than this pier would be a lovely walk. It offers many great opportunities for pictures. It's nice that the... More

This pier is fine for a stroll but not much more. Only a few things to do on there and the main building is a bar, nightclub and entertainment venue for adults. Was expecting a little more to be fair!
