August opening for Brighton’s seafront tower

BRITISH AIRWAYS I360, the world's tallest moving observation tower, opens on August 4, with tickets for the attraction on #Brighton seafront now on sale. 

Visitors will be able to glide up 450ft in an enclosed glass viewing pod with views across Brighton and the Sussex coast.

'Flights' are 20 minutes during the day and 30 minutes after 6.00pm, when the pod becomes the Nyetimber Sky Bar.

Tickets cost from £13.50 for adults and from £6.75 for children, with under 4s free.

The tower was designed by architects David Marks and Julia Barfield, who says: ‘Built at the landward end of Brighton's historic West Pier, British Airways i360 is a modern day vertical pier which invites visitors to “walk on air” and gain a new perspective on the city, just as the West Pier invited Victorian society to “walk on water”.

‘The glass viewing pod, ten times the size of a London Eye capsule and capable of carrying up to 200 passengers, will slowly rise up a slender steel tower to a height of 450ft to provide passengers with stunning views of Brighton and Hove and a beautiful panorama of the south coast and English Channel.’

To buy tickets, a) go to b) call 03337 720 360 (a £2 surcharge will be added to bookings made by telephone c) go to the tower’s ticket office on Brighton seafront, from August 4.
