Eastbourne Pier

Eastbourne Pier

Take a stroll along the Victorian boardwalk and take a step back in time. Take in the sights and sounds and you'll be amazed at what you find. The fun starts at 'Funtasia!' With all the latest video games and slot machines. The kids can while away the afternoon in a fantasy world of dungeons and dragons while adults can try their luck on some of the most up-to-date gambling machines in our adults only area. There is loads to do on the Pier, why not visit the shops, with Cats Whiskers clothes shop, Pier tattoos, Pick n Mix Sweets, Glass Studio, Games stall and lots more. The Camera Obscura on the Pier was built in 1901 and has been a popular feature for many years. During the Second World the camera was almost destroyed so that it didn't fall into enemy hands. You can now witness this fantastic original 360 degrees Victorian projector in all its former glory - it has recently been restored and is waiting to give you a magical view of the seafront. Two events which take place on the Pier are the Birdman Competition and the Raft Race. The Birdman Competition sees mad Englishmen jump off the end of the pier for prizes, while teams in the Raft Race battle it out to make a raft which will float around the Pier.
