Security Checks & Prohibited Items

The safety and security of our guests is our first priority at British Airways i360.

Security Searches and Checks

All guests and their belongings must pass through security checks before entering the viewing pod. We may ask guests to remove some items from their bags or person to be searched separately. These may include, but are not limited to, belts, shoes, jacket, electrical items and liquids.

We use specialist search equipment that is harmless to the vast majority of visitors. If you have any concerns, or have been fitted with a medical device that your doctor advises should not be subjected to a scan – for example, a pacemaker – please bring this to the attention of a member of staff.

Prohibited Items

We reserve the right at our absolute discretion to refuse admission or remove from British Airways i360 or its vicinity anyone who is carrying any of the following items:

  • Articles which could cause injury, damage or annoyance such as a weapon firework, a smoke bomb, a glass bottle, an air horn, or an explosive device
  • Articles which may be used to cause damage such as cutting implements, marker pens or paint
  • Banners or flags
  • An item which may be deemed to aid climbing up the tower or any other structure.


Please note that flameless electric ‘arc’ ligelectric arc lighterhters (similar to the one pictured) are not allowed. These will be held by security for you to collect when you leave.

Confiscated objects are left entirely at the owner’s risk at all times. We accept no responsibility for the loss of or damage to any objects left with us. We are entitled to refuse to store any visitors’ objects at our sole discretion whether for public safety reasons or any other reason.

We will confiscate any illegal knives and hand them in to Sussex Police. We follow government guidelines on what constitutes an illegal knife.
