What a fun spot to be in. Had a few photos done and then looked around, everything you could want is a stones throw from this big rock donut. A must for photos when in brighton

Only went to look at the donut as we were passing by. We have four children aged between 2 and 10 and they all enjoyed being pulled through the donut. Managed to get some fantastic photos! It's not the sort of thing to make a special trip to see, but it was a fun addition to our trip to Brighton.

er, it's a stone doughnut. You could take a picture through it, maybe. Or smother it in jam. Hardly a must-sse.

I'm told there is more to this than meets the eye so maybe I should have hung around a bit longer and investigated but I only saw the obvious and took an opportunity for a selfie with the doughnut in the background. Does that sound sad haha. However I do like all art and free expression and it does attract... More

I haven't looked deeply into this feature but I found it quite unremarkable. I did wonder if it was meant to echo the shape of the moving observation platform on the i360 tower nearby but find it hard to take seriously as a work of art.

The best place to view the pier in Brighton, IMHO, bit of an odd, tauroid, protuberance. but loveable none the less. there's many an hour I've gazed betwixt its turquoise folds.
