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 !

This is a lovely old pier. It took us back to our childhood. Candy floss donuts and sea food, amusements and fair ground rides, passed a good couple of hours. Have been there twice now and would go again.

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.
