About

Take to the skies to see Brighton and the South Coast as you have never seen them before!
Glide up slowly to 450ft to enjoy breathtaking 360° views from our observation tower, conceived and designed by Marks Barfield Architects, creators of the London Eye.

In a fully enclosed futuristic glass pod, enjoy views across Brighton, the South Downs, Sussex coastline and, on the clearest days, all the way to Beachy Head and the Isle of Wight in the west.

On board the pod, enjoy a drink at the Nyetimber Sky Bar, the most unique bar in the UK, serving a range of fine drinks from Sussex including Nyetimber, an award winning sparkling wine.

At beach level is the stylish West Beach Bar & Kitchen, with sea views and a large terrace serving delicious food created from the best ingredients of Sussex.  Afternoon tea can be enjoyed in the  restaurant or traditional West Pier Tea Room.

Visitors can also browse the British Airways i360 shop for an interesting range of gifts and souvenirs, many created by local Brighton artists.

Map & Directions

Road Directions

By car: Our postcode is BN1 2LN. If you are travelling down the M23/A23, you are advised to approach British Airways i360 from the west and should therefore join the A27 westbound (signposted towards Hove) and then use the A2038 (King George VI Avenue) and the A2023 (Nevill Road/Sackville Road) to reach the main coast A259 seafront road. This should help avoid the busiest routes into Brighton.

From the east or the west, use the A27 or A259.

We are located directly opposite the Regency Square car park which has 507 spaces. Please note that the foot tunnel from the car park to Brighton beach next to our site is closed during our works.

Regency Square car park has electric vehicle charging points. To find out where other charging points are located in the city click here.

By motorcycle/scooter: The city has free motorcycle parking bays available, and some have secure locking points. British Airways i360 is in Controlled Parking Zone Z.

By bike: The National Cycle Network Route 2 runs alongside the A259 (Kings Road) on the promenade, right in front of the British Airways i360.

Public Transport Directions

British Airways i360 is easily accessible from Brighton train station and Brighton & Hove buses 

 

By train: We are 15 minute walk from Brighton Station (BN1 3XP) or there is a taxi rank at the station. Brighton is under an hour from London with fast services from Victoria, St Pancras International, London Bridge, Clapham Junction and Gatwick Airport.  There are also direct trains along the South Coast from many places including Portsmouth, Southampton, Eastbourne, and from Bristol.

By bus: The closest bus stop to British Airways i360 is on Western Road (Waitrose stop), which is served by more fifteen local bus routes. These bus stops have accessible kerbs. It is a gentle five minute down-hill walk to the seafront using Preston Street.

We are on the route for the City Sightseeing hop on and off bus. The nearest stop is right by British Airways i360 and it runs westbound along the seafront every day from 1 April until 30 September and then weekends only until 31 October.

Long distance buses connect Brighton to Portsmouth, Chichester, Worthing, Eastbourne and Beachy Head, Newhaven, Seaford, Tunbridge Wells, Uckfield and Lewes.

As part of our development we will be creating ample bike parking spaces at our site.

By taxi: The nearest taxi ranks are in Preston Street and outside the Metropole Hotel. Over 60% of the city’s taxi fleet are wheelchair accessible.

By coach: We are a 10 to 15 minute walk from the city's coach station at Pool Valley (BN1 1NJ). National Express runs services to Brighton from London Victoria, and Gatwick, Heathrow, Southampton, Luton and Stanstead airports.
