Enjoy a cup of cream tea at Eastbourne Pier, an old-fashioned seaside wharf that has long been a favorite hangout for both local families and passing tourists. The site once included several traditional pier theaters, the last one of which was destroyed by fire in 1970. Today, on the landward half of the pier stand a bar, nightclub, fish and chip kiosk, amusement arcade, and a fast food outlet. Farther out are a small cafe, restaurant, clothing shop, and a tattoo parlor. The tower at the end of the pier is often used as a convenient viewing point during the annual air show. Drop by on a quiet evening to soak up the atmosphere and mingle with the locals. See Eastbourne Pier and all Eastbourne has to offer by arranging your trip with our Eastbourne travel itinerary maker.

  • We visited in April this year and although we could see work was being done, it was still a bit 'tatty' in places and was not fully accessible. Now, there are lots of new picnic tables, fresh paintwor...  read more »
  • Always a favourite for a weekend getaway...and first experiences for my grandchildren. suits all ages...always a busy shopping centre 10minutes walk away..almost every shop you want...and copious amounts of lovely coffee shops!! The aarndale shopping centre is being renovated..but doesnt impinge on your shopping at all. All hours eating places...I never tire from this seaside resort. BUT for the younger gamblers to put your coppers into....due to the main part of the pier catching also got rid of the amusement arcade which is really a must for thays gone...I hope the council will approve another as its really needed for that seaside feel and all ages love the 2p....10p etc machine...PLEASE BRING IT BACK. Otherwise this Eastbourne seaside is great!!!
  • A lovely pier without the nasty penny arcades that blight most. Well maintained with lots of seating and a pleasant bar at the end. Probably more could be made of it, but this was the first sunny weekend of the season, so there's time yet.
  • Pier was mostly nice. It was a bit dodge towards the end where some of the benches that over hung the edge were rusting away. On one of them it did say "do not sit" in faint marker. The shops/arcades on the pier were okay.
  • Really nice pier, saw the nightclub there and it must be the best looking night club i've seen. Very scenic for a walk as well. Check out Brighton's Pier as it is much much better and bigger.
  • Really nicely kept and clean. Lovely promenade to walk safely along. Been many times and the sun always seems to shine.
