We would normally be partying with you at 450ft into the small hours to bring in the new year, but alas 2020 has other ideas.  So, instead, we are pleased to host a special New Year’s Eve Fly & Dine package, the perfect way to spend time with loved ones, before seeing in the new year safe at home!

So, come and escape to the skies onboard the BA i360 pod before sharing your last meal of the year with friends and family at our beachside restaurant, West Beach.

We have laid on a decadent three-course set menu, with fresh ingredients from local suppliers with gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options are available.  Why not upgrade your ticket to a Sparkling Wine Experience and toast goodbye to 2020 and bring in 2021?
