Flameless electric ‘arc’ lighters are not allowed. These will be held by security for you to collect when you leave.
Any sharps that do not constitute an offence, will be retained and returned to guests as they leave, in accordance with our prohibited items policy. If a person is asked to remove an item that is being carried for religious beliefs, they will be offered a private space to do so, and the item will respectfully and safely be stored until their return.

You must be confident that your assistance dog will not be distressed by travelling in the enclosed glass viewing pod.
There is a safety limit on the number of wheelchairs permitted on board the glass viewing pod on any one pod journey and therefore we recommend that you book your timeslot as early as possible. We keep a limited number of wheelchairs at Brighton i360 for use during your visit to Brighton i360. These are available on a “first come, first served” basis from our shop, and are not available to pre-book. Your credit card details must be given as security, and we may charge you for £250 if the wheelchair is damaged or not returned.

Closure of Brighton i360 and adverse weather
We reserve the right, with or without prior notice, to shut all or part of Brighton i360 in adverse weather, for maintenance or a private event.
If possible, we will try to provide advance notice on our website and try to email any visitors affected by the closure. If this happens, we will offer you an alternative timeslot, restaurant reservation time or cancel the ticket. If we cancel your ticket, we will refund you those monies you paid for the tickets, but we will not pay any other compensation to you (including no travel expenses or any other out of pocket expenses).
We reserve the right, whether due to adverse weather or maintenance, for the glass viewing pod to travel up to a lower height than usual. If we operate at a lower height then you have no right for a refund of those monies paid for the tickets, nor any other compensation.
The quality of the views experienced on board the glass viewing pod will vary according to the weather conditions, which is entirely outside of our control. In the unusual event that there is zero visibility from the glass viewing pod at all heights, then you will be entitled to receive a complimentary ticket for another date. If, however, there is a sea mist which results in zero visibility at ground level but the glass viewing pod rises above the mist, then no such complimentary ticket will be issued. You are not entitled to a complimentary ticket or refund if the views aren’t as clear on the day as your visit, as on other days of the year.
