Other useful information

Pod flights depart every half an hour and last around 25 minutes (including boarding and disembarking). We ask groups to arrive at least 30 minutes before their flight time in order to pass through security. 

The British Airways i360 app is available to download and has games and fascinating facts about the attraction available in multiple languages.

After their flight, school groups will pass through the British Airways i360 shop where pocket money souvenirs are available to purchase, many of them created by local artists.

There are toilets at the upper boarding level and in the beach building. Pod hosts are first aid trained and there is a first aid room on site should it be needed.

We do not have picnic facilities, but picnics can be eaten on the beach or on benches around the public plaza to our west.

School visits usually last around an hour. Heritage Learning Brighton & Hove lists other venues offering educational visits in the city.

Free school resources

We are currently creating curriculum-based activity sheets to support your day trip to British Airways i360 as well as classroom-based worksheets that will help to extend the learning.

The KS1 and KS2 worksheets will engage skills within the subjects of Maths, Science, Geography, Art, Design and Technology.

Our KS3 and KS4 curriculum-supported workbook will focus on understanding the design and engineering challenges in construction and the principle of the vertical cable car, encouraging students to think like an engineer.

These resources will be available to download soon.
