British Airways i360
British Airways i360 is a moving observation attraction on Brighton seafront. It was conceived and designed by Marks Barfield Architects, creators of the London Eye. Guests board a giant glass observation pod and glide up gently to 450ft for panoramic views across Brighton & Hove, the South Downs National Park and the beautiful Sussex coastline.
At its base is a visitor centre with a large restaurant serving food inspired by the region; a shop selling goods made locally and a suite of flexible events spaces which are used by local and national businesses for corporate events.
British Airways i360 is sited at the root end of Brighton’s West Pier and seeks to offer a modern-day interpretation; enabling guests to ‘walk on air’ as the Victorians once ‘walked on water’ on the pier.
Why do you support the Living Wage?
We pay the Local Living Wage, do not offer zero-hours contracts, and directly employ many services which are often out-sourced, such as housekeeping and security. We believe that paying decent wages will attract and retain great people who are able to deliver outstanding customer service. If visitors have a fantastic experience when they visit us, they are more likely to recommend our attractions to friends and family and to share their positive experience on social media. We believe that paying decent wages will have a direct and positive impact on our bottom line.
