West Pier Arches

A photo of the West pier arches.

The new West Pier arches, in the creative quarter of Brighton beach, offers the perfect way to combine sun, sea & shopping.

Situated at the site of the West Pier, & forthcoming British Airways i360, the West Pier arches feature a range of unique retail outlets selling products from designer gifts & homeware to children’s clothing, photographic prints, frames & books. The site also includes a hairdresser & beauty salon.

The refurbished arches, originally built in Victorian times, are also lit nightly with custom made lighting programmed to produce sweeping blues, whites and sea greens to represent waves. Well worth a visit at dusk in tandem with the nearby Bandstand, also beautifully lit at night-time.

An artists's impression of the i360 observation tower in Brighton.The new retail arches are also situated at the site of the British Airways i360 - the exciting new visitor attraction planned for completion in 2016.

At 162 metres high, with an observation pod rising to 138 metres, the i360 will be the world’s first vertical cable car and the tallest observation tower outside London.

Offering a whole new perspective on Brighton & Hove, the i360 will sit at the root end of the historic West Pier on Brighton’s seafront.

With a futuristic pod allowing 200 visitors at a time to enjoy the surrounding view, the site will also include a visitor centre, featuring a 400 seat restaurant and an i360 shop.
