The West Pier of Brighton was old and disused for many years. On 28 March 2003 it was destroyed by fire. Most of wreckage was subsequently removed and today all that is left is a scorched and twisted metal frame.

The West Pier was destroyed in storms quite a few years ago. All that remains is the metal frame of what it once was. It is still quite beautiful in a unique way. Worth taking in as you walk along the seafront. It is right...More

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.
