The pier is 2.158km long! Much longer than the piers we use to jump off at Rye and Sorrentto! The day we went there, just so happened to be the same day as an Air show, so there were planes and helicopters flying above us, and the streets were closed off for a bit of a festival.
We got some cod and chips from a fish and chip shop, then caught the train (haha!) that runs from one end of the pier to the other. Once out there, we took some photos, and started the 2km walk back to land!
Once back on land, we walked back to the train station, and made the journey back to London. Not a hugely eventful day, but pretty much the only touristy thing I have done since being in England! And now we can both say we've walked on the worlds longest pier! :D
