The Belle Vue restaurant at British Airways i360 has also closed for a refit, and will re-open under a new name – the West Beach Bar & Kitchen, in time for the August 4 first-year anniversary.

Celebrated local neon artist Andy Doig is creating a bespoke piece for the bar area and artwork by other Brighton artists will be displayed for sale year-round.


British Airways i360 Executive Director Steve Bax said: “A year after it opened, British Airways i360 is giving inspiration and delight to hundreds of thousands of people. Nearly 80% of our customers rate us as 'excellent' or 'very good' on TripAdvisor, and according to the Brighton Visitor Survey 2016***, we are the most-visited paid-for attraction in Brighton.
