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.

A walk by the Pier is the Ultimate Brighton Experience, providing a long walk across the Channel and a view on the Ocean, the beaches and the amusement park.
Beautiful pier; very helpful staff; non-smoking area; gorgeous views; rides for the kids and lots of cute little food stands selling fish and chips, ice cream and lots of other goodies. Beautifully lit up at night.
As you stroll the beach investigate the West pier. It has history, rides and games galore. The old wooden walk to the end should not be missed.
Nothing to review. It is just a ruin. A few bits of metal sticking out of the water. Not much to add really. It was closed for years as unsafe, then it burnt down.
