It's on the Easty Street (Doughnut) Gryone on the sea front. Interesting to stop and have a quick look. Take views from different angles. Well done Hamish for making this. Look through the centre hole at the horizon.

Everyone here calls it "just a doughnut," but it's actually a water map of the world...on its side. The continents are all carved into it, and you can see the water as you look through it. Pretty cool--but see it on the way. Not a "come to see this" attraction, but certainly a cool oddity/piece of art!

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.
