Take to the skies to see Brighton and the beautiful south coast as you have never seen them before. Glide up gently to 450ft in the futuristic glass viewing pod, which was conceived and designed by Marks Barfield Architects, creators of the London Eye.
Admire 360-degree views across Brighton & Hove, the South Downs National Park, the UNESCO Biosphere and, on the clearest days, all the way along the coast to the Isle of Wight (49 miles away).
The glass viewing pod is fully enclosed and spacious – it’s 10 times the size of a London Eye capsule. There is room for up to 175 visitors to stand at the edge of the pod and look out, or to move around and see the view from different angles. The Sky Bar on board the pod serves Nyetimber sparkling wine and other drinks from Sussex, so you can raise a glass of something special while taking in the views.
The friendly in-flight crew will welcome you on board, point out landmarks and answer any questions. The pod is heated and air-conditioned to ensure year-round comfort and it is fully accessible for wheelchair users.
A viewing map is available and a multi-lingual app can be downloaded before you board. The app has ‘pre-flight’ information about how British Airways i360 was built, as well as an in-app viewing map and a children’s section with fun facts and a treasure hunt. The content can be enjoyed in a choice of languages including English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese and Mandarin.
At the end of your flight, the pod descends into the beach building at the base of the tower, with terraces opening straight out onto the promenade. There you can enjoy delicious food at West Beach Bar & Kitchen, browse the shop to find stylish gifts inspired by British Airways i360 and the surrounding environment, visit the construction exhibition or host an event in the beachfront events spaces.
This package also includes entrance to Borde Hill Garden which is a stunningly beautiful and botanically rich heritage garden, set within over 200 acres of traditional parkland. It captivates and delights visitors with a series of intimate ‘living garden rooms’, fine woodland, parkland, lakes and outstanding views across the Sussex High Weald. Guests will also receive a 10% discount in the onsite shop.

I was given this as a Christmas present.My friend and I visited the i360 on a Monday at 1.30pm.We were very impressed at the structure itself and happily waited our turn.The security checks prior to boarding were thorough but done with care and professionalism. The ascent was so smooth we hardly felt we were moving.There was plenty of room to walk about and more than adequate seating.It was a clear sunny day so the views were amazing.The bar looked good although we did not use it.When we were back down,we bought a few things in the gift shop and then made our way into the restaurant.A good move!Very welcoming staff and really comfortable seating.We ate indoors as it was really windy but the view through the window made up for that.We both enjoyed our meals washed down with a glass of wine.

Great views and beautiful garden
We received this as a present and went on a really sunny day. The views from the i360 were amazing. We were also lucky enough to pick the right week to visit Borde Hill Garden where they had the most amazing sculptures and a tree in flower that rarely flowers. It was a really busy day and probably would have been better to have visited them on separate days.
