You can't visit Brighton without visiting the pier. Try the warm doughnuts and crepes. Staff are nice and it is kept very clean.

The last part of this pier stands lonely in the sea waiting to fall, for years on visits there was a campaign advertised to restore, given the wealth of this resort its failure is regrettable, however the vertical replacement from BA is at least progress...More

First let me clarify something - the West Pier is the atmospheric derelict structure and therefore some of the reviews for the Palace Pier have been incorrectly posted as West Pier reviews! Some people think that the skeletal remains of the West Pier are ugly...More

Ugly ruin. They should absolutely rebuild it or remove it. It's nothing to see and I find it weird that it's even listed as an attraction

Surprisingly free access to the pier. It is quite long and full of arcade entertainment, food stalls and fun fair at the end

This is sadly no longer there as was burnt down many years ago. What's left is just a metal structure out at sea. We visited the i360 which is opposite and got lots of photos but sadly that's all you can do now.

This was a great pier many years ago but now it is gone with only a few irons from the original pier left

This is tack central- but as long as you go with that mentality then it's really good fun. Fun arcades, dangerous rides and lots of very strange people to admire.

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.

West pier is an intriguing site, and its great that it has been left in its ruined state for passerbys to ponder. In the late winter afternoons it hosts fantastic displays of Starling mumerations. In the summer masses of seagulls bask in the warm sunshine,...More

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.
