Sat at the foot of Brighton Pier is the Brighton Wheel, an attraction that was installed in October 2011 and which has planning permission to stay in place until 2016.
“Look!” he called out. “You get a minimum of three revelations!”
I am not sure we got three revelations, but we did get some fine views. Inland, to our north, we could see the extravagant and famous Royal Pavilion trying to keep its head above its more modern neighbours.
We got a bird’s eye view of the pier head and its fairground rides. These looked very inviting indeed! We finished our three revolutions and got off. During our ride we did receive the benefit of one revelation – that we needed to go to the pier in search of excitement!
