There were two piers in Brighton until a fire damaged the other one so badly it is now only a steel shell sticking out of the water. West pier still remains my favourite and has a feeling of going back 100 years to a time...More

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.

Viewed the West Pier whilst walking along the seafront. Not quite sure why it's been left there; obviously for a reason but it does distract from the lovely Brighton seafront which is a shame.

2 of the things on my photography bucket list involved the same place: a sunset and the starling murmuration at Brighton West Pier. As the weather forecast was looking good and reports of the starlings arrival had been really positive, I went over on Sunday...More

Carnival rides galore, two separate (and addictive) inexpensive gaming arcades, a Victorian-style tea houses, restaurant/bar, nightclub with live jazz -- all these and more reside on the main pier in Brighton! A fun place to visit and play a game (or 2 or more)!

After arriving at Brighton Railway Station , we made our way down the main street to the beach. When we arrived there, we were stunned to see out to our right, the ruins of the old West Pier. It is certainly something of an eyesore....More

At this time of the year at dusk starlings perform a hypnotic mesmerising acrobatic show for at least half an hour. It’s jaw dropping!

I think the remains of the West Pier make a unique and interesting sculptural feature. They look great silhouetted against the sky. Admittedly they aren't to everyone's taste but I like them, and the fact they have been left as a reminder.

The question needs to be more clear. I have no idea what she's asking about what room.

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.
