Every time I go to Brighton seafront, I have to touch the doughnut. It just has a tactile appeal. Put your hand through the hole, peer through it, laugh at it. It just is.

People say it looks like a butt-hole although I imagine their butt-holes must look strange. I think it looks more like a donut. Either way, deserves a photo, eh?

Simply amazing. A beautiful art+doughnut combo. I want to keep it in my house. Definitely worth a visit for doughnut and art lovers. 🍩 10 doughnuts/ 10 doughnuts.

If you read the short history of this sculpture and are interested in seeing this then I'd recommend you pop down to see it... It's right next to the pier. Winched in in 1998. I personally wouldn't go out of you way to see this but everyone is different. I'd rather go down there and watch the lunatics jump off... More

I see this regularly as I walk or cycle past and it is one of the highlights of my journey. Have also photographed it many times in different likes and weather conditions.

...then you are probably very limited in your choices. Fret not! Brighton has you covered in the form of 'The Doughnut' located convieniently near the pier. See children try and clamber on to it! See students stick their faces through the hole! See drunk people lie in its shade on a hot summer evening! Honestly, the pictures really do it... More
