Brighton's seafront observation tower, the British Airways i360, is the perfect place to enjoy spectacular panoramic views over the English coast, the Channel and the South Downs National Park.
What to expect from Brighton Observation Tower?
Built by the same architects who designed the London Eye, Brighton's elegant observation tower, known as the British Airways i360, offers magnificent views over the surrounding beach, city and countryside from its lofty height of 450 feet (or 137 metres).
Your journey begins at the site of the ruins of the historic former West Pier, now transformed into the base of the British Airways i360. The viewing platform is an aerodynamic glass pod that seems to transport visitors to the future.
Inside the viewing pod, you'll fly up to the highest point of the tower, where you'll have thirty minutes to take in the 360 degree views from the futuristic observation area. Admire historic Brighton and its beach, spot the luscious greenery of the South Downs National Park, see the English Channel, and on the clearest of days, you might even be able to see all the way to the Isle of Wight!
The pod is also home to the Nyetimber Sky Bar, where you can toast to the magnificent views while up in the air with a locally-produced beverage. There is also a beach bar and restaurant on the ground floor terrace located on the beach promenade.
"How it was Built" exhibition
Your British Airways i360 ticket also includes access to the fascinating "How it was Built" exhibition, which showcases the tower's construction process as documented by photographers Kevin Meredith and Gary Eastwood. See beautiful photos from the derelict Grade I listed former West Pier, to the final result: an incredible feat of contemporary design and engineering.
