Tell us about this exciting new landmark
British Airways i360 will be the world’s tallest moving observation tower when it opens this summer on Brighton beach. Passengers will glide up to 450ft in a glass viewing pod to enjoy unfolding 360-degree views of Sussex. British Airways i360 is conceived and designed by Marks Barfield Architects, creators of the London Eye.
What facilities and attractions will there be in the beach building?
The real hub of the beach building will be our 400-seat restaurant, the Belle Vue, which will serve modern British dishes inspired by the region. Sit outside and admire beautiful views of the sea and the West Pier in the sunshine; or on chilly days you can dine in stylish surroundings indoors while still enjoying the view.
Our vision is to serve the best food and drink from the region, so we’re delighted that Masterchef: The Professionals winner Steven Edwards and business partner Josh Stanzl will be working with our caterer Heritage Portfolio on a range of signature dishes made using Sussex ingredients.
We'll also be serving Nyetimber sparkling wine, Harvey’s ale and Wobblegate juices – all of which are produced locally and have won multiple awards.
