The bright signage and lights of Brighton Pier are iconic in the UK. The reality is the Pier is rather cheesy but it is great fun. The pier is 1760 feet long and contains 85 miles of planking so it is a good size.
As you walk along the pier you will experience all the things you associate with an amusement park – games, fairy floss, loud music, hot dogs and even Churros!
There is a range of rides available. For younger kids (or older nervous kids and adults!) there are giant slides and cups and saucer rides. Thrillseekers can try the Turbo Coaster or the Booster.
Further down the beach is the charred remains of what was the West Pier which collapsed in 2002. It now makes for a slightly haunting photo opportunity.
