Brighton Pier Madeira Drive Brighton 01273 609 361
Splendidly old-fashioned and a barrel of fun, the pier’s collection of snack stalls, fortune-tellers and fairground attractions (our favourite: the Dolphin Derby) are a real crowd-pleaser. Even if you have no intention of getting a fake tattoo, scoffing a cloud of candyfloss or letting the Super Booster swing you through the air at 60mph, it’s great for a stroll, enjoying the sensation so beloved of the Victorians – that of being on a cruiseship, but with none of the seasickness. The rides spill onto the beach below, too, where there’s a carousel, complete with gilded horses, and bungee trampolines to hurtle you skyward for a somersault or three.
I love Brighton Pier. It's so great that it's free to go on and I love getting one of the free deck chairs on a sunny day and looking out to sea. The rides are fun too. An all time favourite of mine would be the waltzer where you sit in circular carts and go round and round and up and down, sometimes if you shout faster, the guy working the machine will give you an extra push.
