  • As far as beach piers go I would say that Brighton is up there as one of the best. We had a few children ranging from ages 2 to 13 and we managed to find something for all of them. The positives are....  more

  • Great fun fare. But very expensive . The pier rides are a mixture of traditional and new and original. Great for all ages. But at £30 for a wrist band. £120 for a family of 4. Over priced

  • A day well spent is a everlasting memory in our busy life. The best day outing for a family, couples, friends, singles. This is the place for those who likes the crowd. Pebbles here resembles like necklace of the shore. The sight of flying seagulls, the warmth of direct sun and the chillness of the soaring waves feels like a paradise on earth. Brighton Palace Pier a great amusement park for kids and adults, interestingly this heavy rides were setup inside the sea.
  • Nice little cafe. Serving brunch cakes, pastries.. Staff attentive. Lovely pasta with egg yolks and asparagus. Delicious. Various high end soft drinks. Rhubarb lemonade. Very relaxed atmosphere. Right in the middle of the Lanes. Really enjoyed it. Mains good value pasta £15. Would definitely go back.
  • Walking up the Pier was a pleasure, nice and clean, little gift shops, ice-creams, amusements and seating looking out over the sea. At the end of the pier was a good size fun fair which was nice and busy. The sun was shining and happily many of the slot machines were the 2p kind - just what I love 😁
  • Really great place to visit. Go at least twice a month and we only live along the seafront from the pier. Its got so much better since the new owners have taken over. Rides go on for a reasonable time, food is great, the donuts are outstanding and the staff are pleasant. Love this place now!
  • A very nice place to visit, it got everything that you need for a day out or even a seaside holiday, there’s an amusement park, an arcade on the pier which added lots of fun to our visit, my kids love it. It’s really nice to have a stroll along the pier. The only thing I don’t like is the sea gulls, it snatched my ice cream while I was looking at the beautiful sea view. 😂
