British Airways i360 opens ahead of pride celebrations
The world’s tallest moving observation tower, which moves up and down, not side to side, opens in Brighton on August 4 with views from 138 metres above the beach.
The British Airways i360 attraction opens in advance of the popular Brighton Pride celebrations (August 5-7), and tickets are now on sale.
Designed by the same architect team as the London Eye, a glass viewing pod will glide up and down the tower, carrying up to 200 people at a time. ‘Flights’ last 20 minutes by day and 30 minutes after 18:00, when the pod bar opens. Ticket prices start from £13.50 (€16.20) for adults and £6.75 for kids (under 4s free).
The attraction is also the world’s most slender tower, with a diameter of 3.9 metres at its widest point. Many locals campaigned – in vain – against its construction.
