The British Airways i360 (BAi360) will open on 4th August 2016.


Take a unique flight to the skies in the world’s first vertical cable car and see breath-taking three hundred and sixty degree views of Brighton and Hove’s seafront, amazing oceanic scenery and several miles of the surrounding Sussex area as you slowly ascend to nearly five hundred feet high in the i360 viewing pod.


Designed and conceived by the creators of the London Eye, Marks Barfield Architects, the i360 pod floor-to-ceiling glass is the tallest moving observation tower on the planet and is already published in the Guinness World Records.


Positioned close to Brighton’s historic West Pier, The British Airways i360 has family friendly facilities including a special buggy park and a choice of three places to eat open to the general public.


You can enjoy a cream tea and much more in the beautifully reconstructed West Pier Tea Room whilst the beach café is a more casual option and The Belle Vue restaurant has a fantastic menu including choices for kids created by Brighton’s own Masterchef: The Professionals winner!


In 2017, children under eight years old will be able to let off some steam in the soft play area while the adults dine.


Experience a fun pre-ride show and find out how the tower was built and which landmarks you can see by downloading the free multilingual app before you board the British Airways i360 viewing pod.


There’s an in-app treasure hunt and a fun fact corner. Additionally and alternatively there are family activities and events as well as queue entertainment and to keep everyone entertained in the summer holidays.
