Owner description: Take to the skies to see Brighton and the beautiful South Coast as you have never seen them before. 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. For thrill-seekers, iDrop Abseil is the most exhilarating new experience on the south coast! Abseil from the British Airways i360 pod, 450ft above Brighton beach. Take in the sweeping coastal views as you glide down through the open air.

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

We were looking out for somewhere really special for a retirement party. This was something that suddenly came into a plan. The staff were great and the party was amazing. We went up before the clocks forward so it was dark Brighton looked amazing. Go for it and enjoy

We visited in the early evening on our wedding anniversary. I had pre-booked tickets which I showed on my phone, and it was quick and easy to get through the entrance (inc bag checks). Expensive bar on board, but it’s for a treat. We thoroughly enjoyed it, you can walk all the way round and there was plenty of space. I only wish it had lasted longer. There’s a little exhibition area after you get off, which could do with a refresh (some of the captions have come off etc) but other than that, it was spot on.

This is smart, efficient and wonderful attraction that everyone should visit.

Reasonably priced and bookable on line with a discount, this is well worth the time and money. Fantastic views at every level and there is a bar on board! If you can afford the ‘sky high’ prices.

Don’t miss the exhibition at the end and take 5 minutes to watch the time-lapse construction video.
