British Airways i360 was designed, engineered, manufactured and promoted by the team responsible for the London Eye. The attraction cost £46 million, with £36 million being funded by a Public Works Loan Board (PWLB) loan through Brighton and Hove city council.
Formerly known as the "Brighton i360", the project aimed to attract 739,000 paying customers every year. The owner of the site, the West Pier Trust, hoped in 2014 that a successful i360 would lead to the rebuilding of the historic West Pier.

British Airways i360 Reviews
I should say my family forced me to come, and I was pleased by the view obviously, I love my city, Brighton. But this huge tower is such an horrible structure! Can’t you take exemple to the lovely... more »
Great experience and engineering, and of course fantastic views. Maps of what you are seeing possibly could be improved or increased. Not sure if it is a little expensive for just 25 minutes. Don't..... more »
A must do if you are in the area of Brighton! It was a great experience, amazing views of the area. They have a bar on board which serve unique drinks. Try the one with the local rock candy, it’s delicious. I have a fear of heights but it goes up and down very slowly so it’s not that bad. Really enjoyed this experience
Staff made a real effort to make it a 'flight' that was fun & remembered. Its an interesting experience that gives you a different perspective of Brighton & the sea. The only thing that I would change is the photo experience that is an additional requirement - you have to pose for a photo prior to the flight & then after you are given the option of buying the photo. I think this cheapens the experience & more focus should be put on affordable souvenirs & gifts. Overall though it was a different & enjoyable way to spend a morning.
