In the fading light with a bit of sunset left in the western sky, I saw several people in the space of ten minutes taking selfies with this iconic ruin as the backdrop. Shame it couldn't be restored but it remains there to remind us...More

The remains of the West Pier make for a stunning photo opportunity, particularly at sunset. However, don’t just take photos, it’s worth researching the fantastic history of the pier in all its glory!

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.
