As we near the end of the summer holidays and your thoughts turn towards the kids going back to school, why not indulge their imaginations on a final adventure this summer holiday?
Whatever your child wants to be when they grow up, a flight on British Airways i360, followed by a trip to some of these fantastic attractions across Sussex, is sure to inspire them before the new school year.
Escape the force of gravity and glide up towards the sky in the spaceship-like giant glass viewing pod before journeying into the centre of space at the South Downs Planetarium & Science Centre. Touch a real meteorite and search for new worlds and stars with professional astronomers. Get hands-on and look up at space through some of the largest telescopes in the world at The Observatory science centre. Learn all about the solar system before heading to a rocket building workshop where you can build your own spacecraft to get there.
Earn your wings by navigating the sights and landmarks of Brighton, Hove, and the South Coast. Our friendly British Airways i360 Guest Experience hosts will point out landmarks and Tuck into a delicious cake whilst waving at planes taking off and those coming into land at the oldest airport in the UK, Brighton City Airport. Discover the “Golden age” of British aircrafts, learn about the history of Gatwick Airport and the airlines that defined a generation of travel at the Gatwick Aviation Museum.
Fly like a Butterfly?
Spread your wings and flutter up to 450ft, spotting gardens across the South East that are home to some of the 71 butterfly species in the UK. Back on ground level get up close to hundreds of beautiful butterflies at Butterfly House at Horniman Museum & Gardens. Experience butterflies free-flying all around you and discover amazing facts about the lifecycle and behaviour of different butterfly species from around the world. Walk among tropical butterflies, exotic birds and beastly insects as you wander through a maze of seventeen themed gardens, at Earnley Butterflies and Gardens, near Chichester. Find out about the various rescue animals they look after and how they take care of them before finishing your visit with a spot of crazy golf.
