We can now confirm that BYC has closed in order to carry out the first stages of the large scale renovation work taking place to the building over the next 18 months.

The park and rest of the youth centre are closed to the public. 

During this down time we will be constructing a temporary skate facility elsewhere in the city. We are currently working hard to find a location for this and will update as things progress. If you think you can help with our rehousing quest please do get in touch!

BYC’s other youth facilities will be moving to a temporary site on Gloucester road in central Brighton. We will be running youth club and other activities there, as well as other events and activities around the city during this time. More on that to follow soon!

We’re extremely grateful to everyone who visits the centre over the years, and are sorry that it has come about this way. It definitely wasn’t the plan. This is an essential step in securing BYC’s future and allowing us to continue providing these services to young people in Brighton. We will of course keep you updated with any and all progress as we go through this change. Until then, if you didn’t hear it from us then feel free to ignore whatever it is.


BYC Skatepark is Brighton’s only indoor skate facility. The park is for skateboarding only, and is open to people of all ages and abilities.

The park features obstacles of varied sizes and difficulty to suit all levels. Skateboards and protective equipment are always available to use for free for those without their own!

Our popular tuition courses run throughout the year and have helped hundreds of children and adults to start skateboarding.
