Eastbourne Pier, Eastbourne

3.4
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 attractions planner .

  • This classical Pier in Eastbourne, largely built of wood, is Victorian entertainment from the beginning of the last century. There are few on the Pier: there are many coffee and tea facilities that remain closed during our morning visit. There are also a number of fairground attractions and more. You can sit on the many freshly painted benches and gaze at the horizon. Then you're not alone...

  • The pier is a great place to visit on a sunny day. A really atmosphere and lots going on. At the end of the pier there is a nice bar based on a jazz theme. Lots of memorabilia and music playing. They do food and on a nice day it is really nice to sit outside. I often visit on nice days
  • Nice place to spend a short evening stroll around and in the Eastbourne pier. There is nothing much to do other than taking a nice stroll with something to munch like handmade ice cream from fresh dairy. There are some game parlours and fun for the kids with some pubs and restaurants on the deck.
