    You can't order this doughnut back if you are on the boulevard of Brighton. Photogenic art object. From this point you have a good view on the pier.

    Damn vandals ruined a great piece. The lifering deserves a better spot, it is too close to the pier, however it is an interesting piece.  more »

  • Very greasy doughnuts, but on a cold winters day, a hot bag of anything is appreciated. Not good for you, but filling and warming
  • It is tradition if you visit the pier you must get the doughnuts
  • Hot fresh donuts. Always great. Avoid sauces for your donuts
  • Nice for a quick snack
  • Maybe it's because I don't have any childhood memories associated with it, and I visited on a freezing foggy day when everything was shut, but I don't get the big deal about Brighton Pier. I can imagine that in the summer it's wonderfully tacky (and BUSY) - vanilla ice cream, fish & chips, kids on fairground rides, etc. But it isn't something I'll go out of my way to visit next time I'm in Brighton.

Where to stay in Brighton

During the height of the tourist season and on most weekends Brighton is a very congested city, where driving is difficult and parking is limited in the central areas most frequented by tourists. Avoid getting stressed out by staying at a self-catering apartment or a private B&B farther away from this part of town. Brighton's famous nightlife may be a bit far from there, but you can still enjoy seafront walks, good restaurants, and excellent shopping. Private seafront lodgings allow you to enjoy your stay quietly in comfort, while remaining within walking distance of Brighton's best beaches.
