Opening in summer 2016 by Brighton’s historic West Pier, the ground-breaking attraction will be 162 metres tall, with the fully enclosed glass pod soaring to 450 feet. Up to 200 visitors at a time will enjoy unfolding 360-degree views of the UK’s most popular seaside town, wild expanses of the South Downs National Park, UNESCO World Biosphere, dramatic chalk cliffs, English Channel and 26 miles of the Sussex coastal landscape.
The pod itself is 4.7 metres high and 18 metres wide, with an elegant futuristic design that won’t fail to make its mark on Brighton’s iconic seafront. It will be heated and air conditioned, fully accessible for wheelchair users, have bench seating for passengers and house a Sky Bar for refreshments. The visitor centre incorporates a 400-seat restaurant, gift shop, children’s play zone, exhibition space, tea rooms and conference and event facilities.
