Nice Pier

Nice pier, postcard of British seaside experience. If the breeze gets too much, hop inside for some coin operated action on the games machines.

No better view on your morning run that along the promenade and out to the Pier. And peaceful in te mornings until 9am - Brighton is a late starter!

Born in Brighton but lived away for 50 years. Always loved Brighton, vibrant, colorful, the city that never sleeps. Beautiful seaside views. I have travelled the world but Brighton is my favourite city. Pavilion unique, who can resist a visit to the Pier. Unrivaled variation in shopping from boutiques to department stores to quirky little shops in the Lanes and... More

The pier has your standard amusements and lots of food stalls. It is a great day out on a warm sunny day. There are arcades in which you can win tickets for prizes. Towards the back of the pier are the amusement rides such as roller coasters and dodgems. Prices for the rides are slightly above average, you need to... More

OK it isn't what it was when I first walked on it over 50 years ago. Its brash, garish, noisy, a bit shabby and all that. But don't knock it - its free! You don't have to go but if you do you'll get a great walk, great views of the seafront (and that horrible, plug-ugly elevator thing that ruins... More

Being a brightonion the pier doesn't hold much excitement anymore but it he seemed to go a bit down hill over the last few years of that is the case of the case that I have got older ??

Walking along the piers perfect wooden boards with its perfect chain driven souvenir outlets it seemed bizarre that the cafe' restaurants windows were steamed up giving it the look of a cheap Clacton cafe'. The sweet shop selling authentic rock and 'proper' sweeties is so commercial its actually not authentic at all. Check out the soft nougat- what on earth... More

Yes it is what it says on the tin. Cheesy old style seaside entertainment on a Victorian pier. It is a must see when going to Brighton. Sunsets are spectacular.
