Glide up gently to 138 metres in our futuristic glass viewing pod, conceived and designed by Marks Barfield Architects, creators of the London Eye. Visitors can admire 360-degree views across Brighton, the South Downs and, on the clearest days, all the way to the Isle of Wight. Guests can also enjoy the Nyetimber Sky Bar, the West Beach Bar & Kitchen, the West Pier Tea Room, an exhibition on how BAi360 was built and a shop with a range of products inspired by the design, innovation and craftsmanship of British Airways i360 and its seafront setting.

We went with friends a good trip up but the price of a bottle of Prosecco was ridiculous £65 a bottle ! Also feel the ride is overpriced at £16.50 each

While in Brighton we thought we might as well do the i360 as it’s such a landmark. At £52 for a family it is ridiculously expensive but the plus side was that there a
Was lots of room inside, air con and the waiting area has free deck chairs!
Once done, I wouldn’t pay to do it again. It might be 360views but the sea covers half of that so it’s more 180! If it was cheaper I’d give it 5 stars for effort.

It really worth what you paid. In total, you spend about 25 mins, but the view is amazing. You can see all city around, and the beaches. In waiting area, there are some long chairs to soak the sunshine and drink something. Although it was a sunny Sunday afternoon, it wasn't so much crowded, so we could enjoy the view

The ride itself was amazing but staff inexperienced, unrestrained or disinterested. Maybe they are just temporary staff but there is scope to give a real British airways 5 star experience.
Signage also missing to indicate where the entrance is and staff didn't seem to know either. Basic stuff

Went to Brighton for the day with hubby and a friend. Pre-booked to go on this, well wortg pre-booking as you get a discount!!!!
The pod is very roomy and spacious, we went on with a huge group of school kids and it was'nt claustrophobic at all. The pod is like a giant doughnut, hubby said space-ship, either way it was great fun. The floor was not glass which is a bonus if like me you do not like heights.
It was a gorgeous hot sunny day in Brighton and I did not feel the pod moving. The views are amazing, you can see for miles across the ocean, Brighton and the downs. There were members of BA staff on board to give abit of information and kept the kids in check!!!!! There is also a bar on board where to can buy soft and alcoholic drinks and biscuits.
This is definately worth doing if you are visiting Brighton
