Nothing speacil. Blink and you will miss it and in truth you won’t have missed much at all. You will pass it if you are going to the pier.

An interesting bit of street art placed on the landward end of a small promontory where you can walk along a flat surface almost to the water's edge albeit about ten feet higher than the stony beach. This is just one piece of art that...More

If you like modern sculpture, the Doughnut is a work of quality, and its colour and texture are intriguing. Now, if your tastes lean more towards Michelangelo-type works, you may prefer to visit some other monument.

Interesting statue with great views over the sea and Brighton seafront. There is plenty to see and do nearby, but the Afloat/Donut statue is probably best visited alongside another seaside attraction.

I got some great photos of my family. The statue is right by the seafront and has a beautiful view..

A little ridiculous really. It’s an over sized doughnut statue plonked along the sea front... Fun for all of 2 minutes

The challenge seemed to be to get the kids through the centre head-first without dropping them. Too busy to notice the view.

If you have time, it is worth having a look at this work of art along the seafront. The photo's don't do it justice.

lovely view of the doughnut on a sunny January morning. We saw the statue from a distance and it looks pretty with the sea behind.
