One of the newest attractions to hit the Brighton Seafront is Sixes, a cricketing experience making its home in the Brighton i360.

As the new site celebrates its first week, we visited the facilities to find out what it's all about.

Safe to say this is a brilliant way to spend an afternoon with your friends and is something for cricket fans to get stuck in to.

First arriving at the site you are met with a colourful interior full of cricketing memorabilia centred around the bar.

For those that remember that previous restaurant, this is a far cry from that; the site is set up for socialising and encourages groups to get involved in the action.

After taking in our surroundings we headed straight for the nets to enjoy the evening.

You can select several different speeds to play at, and we went for a medium pace which proved to be a wise choice.

As a cricket novice it took me a few shots to get into the swing of things. It seems missing the odd shot is part of the fun.

However, after a few goes I was quickly hitting balls into the right areas and scoring points to the cheers of people watching on.


After the action it was time for some food and drink which did not disappoint.

Sixes has multiple beers on tap, including their own pale ale, and a whole host of cocktails to enjoy.

If your with a group and fancy a few shots, you can also order favourites such as baby Guinness served on a cricket bat.

For the food, the menu hosts a whole range of pizzas, burgers and loaded fries to tuck in to.

Much like the previous restaurant at the i360, the site offers fantastic views across the coastline right in front of the West Pier. If you can benefit from some of the Brighton's summer weather then the outdoor terrace is a great place to relax.

Sixes Social Cricket is based at the Brighton i360 and is now open.
