Brighton’s famous West Pier ruins seen from the i360

Brighton West Pier ruins’ distorted reflection in the bubble-glass doughnut-shaped gondola of the i360, the attraction which replaces it on almost the same site. Someone inside the viewing pod is also taking a picture. The West Pier has been photographed many times since was opened in 1866; its ruin became an icon of the failures of heritage planning after it was damaged by a storm in 2002 and destroyed by two successive fires in 2003. All the decking and most of the metal struts have now gone. The Brighton i360 carries up to 200 passengers to 162 m. above sea level. Here's my view of the attraction itself:  Brighton i360
