The pier is always worth exploring despite the small cost of entry! (It's free in winter). You can take a short cut back by using the zip wire from the pier end to the beach. If you're reckless! The kids will love it.

I couldn't believe we had to pay entrance fee to go to the pier. We just looked around a bit and then go back. We went for a walk on the beach instead, a lot better and it's free. I've been to Hasting Pier, Eastbourne...More
