You can hardly miss the charred remains of this pier that lies a few hundred metres west of the Palace Pier. It is rather sad however the i360 is an impressive contrast. In building the i360 the entrance gatehouses to the pier have been beautifully...More

Memories of when it was a slightly up market pier in comparison to the glitz of the Palace Pier. Afternoon tea and a concert or pianist! BA Tower at the head with restored "Sweet shops" is excellent and presents a good view over the City....More

Ugly ruin. They should absolutely rebuild it or remove it. It's nothing to see and I find it weird that it's even listed as an attraction

This is sadly no longer there as was burnt down many years ago. What's left is just a metal structure out at sea. We visited the i360 which is opposite and got lots of photos but sadly that's all you can do now.

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.
