Up, up and away – British Airways i360

The Brighton i360 or ‘The British Airways i360’ as it is formally known has transformed the Brighton skyline, adding a futuristic look to the Victorian splendour that was already there. The vertical pier transports guests 450 feet into the air, giving them a unique perspective of the city and the views beyond.
