The new British Airways i360 will allow visitors to take a voyage to the skies on the world’s tallest moving observation tower, designed by the London Eye architects.
The fully enclosed aerodynamically shaped futuristic glass viewing pod is spacious – 10 times the size of a London Eye capsule with room for up to 200 visitors to stand at the edge of pod and look out. There is plenty of space to move around and see the view from different angles.
The pod will be heated and air-conditioned to ensure all-year-round comfort. It is fully accessible for wheelchair users and there is bench seating and a Sky Bar.
During the evening, British Airways i360 will transform into the Sky Bar, the most unique bar in the United Kingdom. The bar will be known as the Nyetimber Sky Bar.
British Airways i360 is due to open in summer 2016.
British Airways i360 and restaurants will be open year round except for Christmas Day.
British Airways i360 has been created through a Public-Private Partnership.
