The historic 1866 tollbooth adjacent to the observation tower will hold a maximum of 45 people, while the upper esplanade will be available for 1,900 people.

According to the venue rate card, the pod will cost £2,250 for a reception, the toll both hire charge is £1,000 while a reception at the upper esplanade will cost organisers £7,500.

The sample menu promises “handmade Sussex sausages”, South Coast fish cakes and South Down lamb hotpot, among other dishes.

Michelle Mainwaring, marketing manager at the Vivid Event Group in Brighton said: “We are extremely excited about the i360 and are looking forward to bringing our clients down from London to experience the south coast in a unique way with a big wow factor. We anticipate utilising not only the viewing pod but all of the flexible spaces available and are looking forward to being creative with a whole range of events we plan to host.”

Eleanor Harris, CEO of the Brighton i360, said: “There is no other venue like this on the South Coast and we have taken exceptional care to design these rooms and all the facilities to create somewhere truly special for conferencing and events, weddings and other parties.”
