Security Searches and Checks
Security checks of guests and/or their belongings are in place for the safety and security of all. We may request guests to remove items from their bags or person to be searched separately including but 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.
We reserve the right in 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 amongst other things;
- Banners or flags; or
- An item which may be deemed to aid climbing up the tower or any other structure.
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.
