“Artistic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

A beautiful piece of art in the middle of Brighton Beach. A must see landmark. I often visit the beach in the summer and always have to have a sneak peak at some of brightons hidden treasures.

“A Large bronze donut on the beach!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

It's a sculpture and part of the Brighhton sculture trail, made of Bronze and set upright on one of the short, concrete groynes (piers) which strut out from the beach into the sea. There are about 15 sculptures on the trail the link is here http://www.visitbrighton.com/xsdbimgs/Brighton%20Sculpture%20Trail.pdf
The Donut itself is Big, about 2.5m high and looking through the hole in the middle can often frame a pleasnt view of the sea and horizon. If the waves hitting the groyne are large enough it can be a very damp experiance as the water splashes over the groyne but most days its fine.
