The Brighton i360, an aerodynamic pod rising to a maximum height of 138 meters, capable of accommodating up to 200 people, designed by Marks Barfield architects, who conceived and designed the London Eye.

With its new i360 tower, Brighton too will be a city that can be experienced from on high. We believe that like London, Paris or New York, Brighton has amazing panoramas that have yet to be discovered: miles and miles of bright blue sea; the tiny labyrinthine streets of the Lanes; the grand Regency architecture of Hove seafront; the dramatic chalk cliffs at Seven Sisters; the wild expanses of the Downs. No other city has surroundings so varied and so unique.
