The i360 has taken off!

The world’s thinnest tower has opened today!! Brighton’s i360 is 450ft tall and gives a view of 26 miles of Sussex coastline.

Some facts about the i360;

  • Its 12.7ft (3.9m) diameter has won it a place in the Guinness World Records as the “most slender tower“.
  • The tower consists of 17 steel “cans” or tubes made in Rotterdam
  • It contains 1,336 bolts weighing 30 tonnes
  • The viewing pod is 59ft (18m) wide – 10 times bigger than a London eye capsule

The trip lasts 20 minutes, it is open from 10am-10pm (11pm at the weekends) – see more info and prices on the website. i360

It is opposite the West Pier (just across the road from Baggies). Let us know what you think, love or hate the donut on a stick?
