    Opening Hours & Prices


    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 on the world’s tallest moving observation tower, conceived and designed by Marks Barfield Architects, creators of the London Eye. In a futuristic glass viewing pod, visitors can admire 360o views across Brighton, the South Downs and, on the clearest days, all the way to the Isle of Wight. View our opening hours and prices below.

    During the summer months customers enter the pod from the open air boarding deck, overlooking the beach and the West Pier. Please note that the weather on the seafront can be changeable and, as the boarding deck is outdoors, customers should be prepared with wind or rain proof clothing. You can check the weather forecast for Brighton here.

    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). Pod flights depart every 30 minutes and each flight lasts approximately 25 minutes (including boarding and disembarking).
