  • I’m slightly bemused by some of the poor reviews for Brighton Palace Pier, we’ve always enjoyed it and this time was no different. It’s free to walk up and down, there’s traditional coin machines...  more »

  • This is one of the better seaside piers. A lot of things going on. By far it's best attribute is the fish & chip shop at the entrance to the pier. It was the best fish dinner I've had at any seaside chippy anywhere. Served fresh and hot. Top quality fish and served in a strong bag so that seagulls can't see what you are eating. It was also a very competitive price. I would strongly recommend that you try it.
  • It's definitely a great tourist attraction, in a very beautiful location, just by the sea. Perfect spot for taking nice pictures and having a good time, there is also a variety of games and themed carousels available, for both children and adults. You can find lots of shops to buy either food or souvenirs. Beware of the seagulls! They're quite cheeky and can steal your food right from your hands
