Home About usThe experience Observation pod

Observation pod

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.

Admire 360o views across Regency 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 fully enclosed futuristic glass viewing pod is spacious – 10 times the size of a London Eye capsule – with room for up to 200 visitors to stand at the edge of pod and look out. There is plenty of space to move around and see the view from different angles and you will even find the Nyetimber Sky Bar on board where you can raise a glass while enjoying the panorama.


Our in-flight crew welcome visitors, can point out landmarks and answer your questions. The pod is heated and air-conditioned to ensure all-year-round comfort and it is fully accessible for wheelchair users.

The British Airways i360 pod hosts the Nyetimber Sky Bar, one of the most unique bars in the UK. Enjoy a glass of Nyetimber, England’s finest sparkling wine, while taking in the stunning views.

A free viewing map is available and a multi-lingual app is also available to download before you board.

The app has ‘pre-flight’ information where you’ll find out about the construction of British Airways i360, as well as an in-app viewing map and a kids section including fascinating facts and a treasure hunt. All of this in a choice of different languages including English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese and Mandarin.

At the end of your flight, visitors descend to our beach building where you can enjoy delicious food in our West Beach Bar & Kitchen; visit our shop to find stylish gifts inspired by British Airways i360 and the surrounding environment; purchase a souvenir photo; or explore our exhibition explaining how British Airways i360 was built.

There is so much to enjoy at British Airways i360 that we expect your visit to last around one hour (or longer if you are dining).
