THis is one of a few pieces of art along the walkway at Brighton Beach. It's not really an "attraction" but it's cute.

I would love to take a bit of this! You can climb on it or hug it or kiss it or stick your head through it. You can even " owl" on it. A real gem of an attraction and worth the train fare alone.

It's a bit of Art that I'm sure has a price tag that would make you sick. This kind of thing pops up all over GB and I'm not sure what people get from it? Could the money be spent on better things? It's a stumble across sight not a planed trip out, I would say!

It's a dougnut. Made of metal. You can look at it and take a picture if you are so inclined, or you could just look at the photo of it on Trip Advisor and then do something else that Brighton has to offer.

We stumbled upon this by accident... it is giant and it is a doughnut, I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this though. If you are there then in the arches behind it there is a lovely bar that has some hilarious entertainment!

It is a sculpture in the shape of a huge doughnut. There is not too much to say about it really, but do take a look at the bits that have been cut out of the metal as they are the continents of the world. I wouldn't go out of my way to see the doughnut but if you are... More

Okay to visit if you're on Brighton seafront, but don't put yourself out as not terribly interesting. It's on the Banjo jetty to the west of the pier.
