This is higher than we originally expected and offers great views of Brighton. Located right on the sea front, it is easy to find. Surrounding roads offer parking and there are also nearby parking structures available. We went on quite a gloomy day in December as they were offering rides with Santa. We still managed to have a great view. The Santa experience was really relaxed. You could either queue to see him or wait for him to come around to see you. The staff were great. We had a wheelchair and found the attraction to be fully accessible.

Didn't think it was going to be worth going. Went during the kids go free week at half term. Amazing. What a trip, my girls commented it was just like an airport... tickets... security and then boarding. Fantastic views over the city and beyond. Gift shop as all things British Airways was a little pricey, but the photo pack definitely worth having to commemorate your day there. Would definitely recommend and will be visiting again.

Superb 360 degree views. An incredibly smooth ride; so smooth you won't even know it's moving! The "flight" lasts 20 minutes - 7 minutes ascending, 6 at the top, and another 7 for the descent. The capsule itself is spacious, and features seating around the innermost part. There's a bar on board, if a quick glass of bubbly tickles your fancy, though you'll probably be more than occupied trying to find a free space by the outer edge of the capsule.

Simply Superb. This venue offers excellent panoramic view, good food and drinks. The flight was a bit shorter than we expected. We were on ground again before we even knew it. Even that I still gave it a 5 star. This a great conference venue too.

My 4th visit now and still love it. Restaurant and cafe both pretty good and staff pleasant and approachable. I360 itself seems to have had a few reliability issues but thankfully has worked fine every time I've gone. Real asset to our town in my view.

Had a very nice time. Pricey though on the whole they try and make it feel special. having said that, I went in March on a very cloudy day, so it was quiet. I can imagine it is quite different on a busy bright summer weekend day. I'd advise you avoid the busy days.

Really cool. Good activity for kids. Helpful and kind staff. A little taught security guard. An amazing view up high especially when near the top and a clear day. Very comfortable inside and while waiting for the pod. 😮👍

Had a lovely time on here with my family after the marathon weekend. In perfect conditions you can see really far which is great. There is also some great acoustical music and friendly staff. I would recommend a visit if you have the time 🙂

Really enjoyable time. Something quite unique to visit. It's not cheap to visit but for the uniqueness it's worth paying. Stunning views. You hardly feel like you are ascending because the ride is so smooth. The staff are pleasant and well mannered.

Great view from the top. You can see the all of Brighton from the top of the British Airways i360 if you do it on a nice day. You can enjoy a nice drink or even have a meal. Great place to go with a group of friends or family. Shame the " flight" does not take longer then 25 or 30 minutes but it's still a lovely experience that nobody should miss the chance to have. Advanced booking recommend specially in the summer.

A great way to see Brighton & Hove..The view was stunning on a beautiful sunny day. The dome was not too busy, allowing you to see the view from all angles. It also gives you time to get a drink from the on-board bar. The4e is a nice restaurant/bar at the base too. Highly recommended

This is a must visit if you are in Brighton, great experience with stunning views across the coast. The ride lasts about 30 minutes and there is an on-board bar for refreshments. Plenty of flights throughout the day and you can just walk up and pay to go on, however I would recommend booking online a few days in advance as you can save yourself a few pounds.

Stunning views of Brighton! Excellent idea in making the elevator chamber round, because as the name suggests you can go round and look at the view from which ever side you want. It's reservatiom based so you don't have to wait a lot in line. Definitely worth the money and make sure not to miss it when you visit Brighton.

We went up the i360 yesterday and loved it. I was a little worried as we had accidentally chosen the hottest day to go and there were large groups of school children. However the boarding process was quick and easy, the staff gave out free water also. The pod it self was air conditioned and the staff were lovely. Got some great views! Great value for money also.

Nice experience, unlike lots of these type of attractions it’s not over and done with in five minutes. It’s quite surprising how high up the i360 goes, you think “oh we must be by the top” but it transpires your only half way up. The “flight” lasts about 30 minutes, there is lots of opportunity to walk around and view brighton from the air, while your up there you can get a drink from the well stocked bar, if you want the real Brighton vibe get some Brighton gin. The elevation is slight, so unlike a ride the i360 essentially takes ten minutes to rise to full night, gives ten minutes to look around at maximum height, then slowly lowers to the ground. Good access for those with wheelchairs. Their is a well stocked gift shop and a restaurant back on the ground. I won’t post the price as these things vary, but on the whole not bad value.

Brighton beach is a nice place to go for sunbathing and fish and chips. Brighton Beach & Seafront was voted one of the Top 10 city beach break destinations in the world, Brighton & its beachfront cool are legendary. I have enjoyed many a long walks along the beach. There's been a lot of redevelopment lately so there's plenty to see and do here.
