Worth to visit. I recommend to take pictures of it on the i360 (the British airways tower) or to watch it from the beach. It’s nice

We visited the pier in oktober 2018. Everything as expected but nothing more than that. Still a nice landmark to visit.

This was a lovely experience walking along the pier looking over out to the sea, sun shining lots of happy people walking along the pier too. So many rides and amusements to keep you occupied.

no access unless you swim, not much left to do when you get there? Can give some really nice photos though, when there's a good sunset or interesting clouds behind it.

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.
