Loved the arcades on the pier just by it under the prom is a vintage arcade with old penny Victorian machines . Worth a visit . Loved the fish and chips at the restaurant at the end of the pier . Food great but the new pier lager is very grim for £4.80 a pint . Should a fish and... More

Well, it's hard to think of a good reason except that as a Brighton resident I guess I should support it. That said, I have taken my kids to the 'fun' fair at the far end. It was quite sweet playing on the merri-go-round. But other than that, the West Pier has more going for it. That one burnt down... More

A lot of fun to be had on Brighton pier, the amusements are great, fish and chips are decent, but the star of the show has to be the Crazy Mouse!! If you like a bit of madness, give it a go!!

If you walk along the seafront a visit to the pier is part of the experience. Whether it is seaside refreshments or amusements you can find them here.

Visited on a cold and blustery February day. A chilly walk to the end. Sadly no amount of doughnut smells and piped music can disguise its aged bleakness. Pity the few who were wandering around aimlessly to go on the rides £20 for a wristband for unlimited all day rides (all 4 or 5 of them) but signs up said... More

It's Brighton Pier, full of amusement arcades & rides which were closed when we visited. It's a nice walk but it is also VERY Commercial. Perhaps good for families, not really for me

Great pier - busy and fun and with food and entertainment. Should change the name back to the more authentic "Palace Pier" 'though. 😉

Brighton pier is what an English pier is all about. On Monday we were both looking forward to hot doughnuts on the pier only to find it all closed up for the evening. Nice n bracing walk on the Sunday though. Can't come to Brighton n not visit the pier.

When u are in Brighton you should have a look at this place. Funfair+ gambling machines+ fast food, these are the main words how I would describe this place. So prepare some coins and go!

Old-school vibrant seaside pier, with fairground rides, fast food, bars, gambling and side shows. Thumping music and flashing lights contrast with glorious sea views.
