We are only a short 10 minute walk from The Lanes, Royal Pavilion and Brighton Pier, which are to the east of the site.

The upper level can be accessed directly from Kings Road and a stroll along the seafront will take you past our beach building which houses our Belle Vue restaurant and shop in front of the West Pier.

There is an access lift between the upper esplanade and beach level for wheelchair users – it can be found at the top of the stairs next to the West Pier Tea Room (housed in the eastern tollbooth).

NOTICE 24th October 2016 – Please note the public lift connecting the upper and lower level is currently out of order – our apologies for any inconvenience this causes. Engineers have been contacted.
