Great views and enjoyed the actual ‘flight’. However, Scottish lady operating the ticket desk couldn’t have been more miserable if she tried - whats she doing at the front of house if she doesn’t want to be there?

Staff very helpful until we reached the guy who searched bags, he was very rude and literally stuffed everything back in my bag, when I asked him to be careful and replace it as he found it he just laughed and said ‘doing my job!’ However the other staff were friendly and efficient and the views are excellent..

Booked online and received a super group discount. Made plans for our group to arrive at the i360 for midday on a sunny Sunday. All present and accounted for, we entered into the flight departure, went through the customary bag search, two of our group had sneaky cocktail cans within their bags so these were removed and labelled up with a raffle ticket for later collection - makes a change as normally in venues you are asked to either put them in the bin or drink them there and then - good effort by i360 with this one! We ventured out onto the viewing platform before 'take off' and ample photo opportunities with both the sea view, the previous flight taking off and super selfies on the oversized and little deckchairs provided. We then boarded the flight and were all surprised how spacious the 'doughnut' was, lovely clear windows (mind the reflections for those keen photographers) and ample seating around the centre. Take off was mild & gentle, you don't even realise you are moving until you look at the surrounding buildings. The views are superb with a 360 panorama and on a clear day (which we were grateful to have) you can see for miles around. The onboard bar is well stocked but from what I could see, only alcohol was available - it would have been nice to have a coffee!! Coming down was more noticeable but only due to the wind outside, otherwise as smooth as possible. Exit is made at ground level so you don't mix with the next ride and you come out into the shop, cafe and photo collections area (if you partook in the initial photos). The shop had some interesting souvenirs if that is you thing and the erstwhile members of the group went to retrieve their cocktail tins - and came back with them - another star in the book for excellent customer service. Will definitely return and look to book the evening flights - to watch the sunset from that height would be superb!!

Decided to go for this on our second visit to Brighton but have to say we expected to be disappointed! Quite the contrary - it was a stunning experience and worth every penny. The cocktail bar deck area was just beautiful and the ride tranquil and surreal. We were lucky with the weather mind you - may not have felt worth it on an overcast day in the rain!

What a view! From take off to landing, this ride was so quiet and smooth. Reasonable price. Plenty of space and time to take photos of the entire Brighton. Really enjoyed the ride.

I went for a delicious afternoon tea at the restaurant at the i360. The views from our table were amazing. The service from Simon and Ashley was wonderful and the staff were all so friendly. The brioche buns were a nice surprise and the scones and desserts were lovely. I would highly recommend a visit.
