World’s Tallest And Thinnest Observation Tower Opens in England

World’s tallest and thinnest observation tower opens in England today. The British Airway i360 takes passengers to 450 feet in a glass and steel round pod and offers up 360-degree views extending up to 26 miles of Brighton and the coastline.

The i360’s pole has a diameter of only 3.9 meters, or 12.8 feet, at its widest point, with a height-to-width ratio of 40:1, which also makes it the thinnest observation tower in the world.
