Brighton i360, Lower Kings Road, Brighton BN1 2LN

This is one birthday experience not to be missed -and how could you miss this incredible structure, towering over the Brighton seafront. 

Not only does the i360 take you up to a dizzy 450ft high with, as the name would suggest, 360 degree panoramic views of Brighton, but you can enjoy everything from a birthday glass of fizz on the way up, to a full ‘yoga in the sky’ class experience!  Follow it up with a wander around the fascinating exhibition after your ‘flight’. 

For those seeking an eco conscious birthday experience,  the i360 is completely sustainable, generating its own power to operate.  One birthday activity that will certainly leave you on a high!

The Brighton i360 is open every day of the week from 11am to 6pm (6.30pm on weekends).  Advance tickets are available here.
