Receptions

British Airways i360 is one of the most unique, exciting new venues in the UK. Host an exclusive event in our futuristic glass pod or our contemporary beach-side rooms with private terrace for 10 to 1,000 guests.

The glass pod

Take a voyage to the skies to see Brighton and the South Coast as you have never seen them before in the world’s first vertical cable car, designed by the London Eye architects.

During your event, the futuristic pod will glide up slowly to 450 feet offering breathtaking 360 degree views over the city, the South Downs, the coastline and the seascape.

Our glass viewing pod can be hired exclusively for an event for up to 175 people. It features the Nyetimber Sky Bar, a state of the art sound system and video screens, which can all be tailored to your requirements. The pod is heated and air-conditioned to ensure all-year-round comfort; is fully accessible for wheelchair users and there is bench seating.

Enjoy a glass of Nyetimber, a drinks and canapés reception or even a full banquet.

The pod is available to book for exclusive flights whether during or after our public opening hours. Most events take place in our beachside event spaces, with one or more private flights during the event and we can ‘board’ your guests directly from our hospitality suite, bypassing the public queue.

Beachfront hospitality rooms

Inspire your guests at the ultimate beachfront venue. Our rooms open up to a private beachside terrace and have beautiful views of the sea and West Pier. There is no other venue like this on the South Coast.

Savour delicious food from “Sussex’s larder”. We can cater for full banquets, private dining, drinks and canapé receptions.

The beachside terrace makes British Airways i360 the ideal venue for summer parties – enjoy outdoor barbecues, summer cocktails or Nyetimber, England’s finest sparkling wine, while taking in the sea views.

Our hospitality rooms are located in a separate suite away from the main public building. All rooms have natural daylight, sound systems and beach/sea views. The rooms have flexible dividers and therefore we are able to cater for groups of different sizes.

During the evenings, the entire beach building and pod can be hired exclusively for an event for up to 1,100 people.
