A real shame and not a lot to see. Just a iron construction that was once mighty. You cant miss it if you are walking along the beach. A far nice place than the other one x

Personally I love that the ruins of the pier are still standing proudly. A few of the original pillars have been (I believe) moved along the seafront to make room for the 360i

Just needs knocking down. An eyesore that spoils the beachfront of Brighton. Someone needs to take action.

It must be 20 years ago that the West Pier looked like this ! It is now a wreck gradually being swalled up by the sea. Best thing to see is the starlings !

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.
