While we may currently be without a home, we’re still very much alive and will be doing outreach, events and activities throughout the summer to keep contact with young people around Brighton.

We are visiting skateparks around the city on a weekly basis, starting with these sessions where we’d like to encourage girls, women and gender non-conforming skaters to come and visit skate at the following parks on these dates. We’ll be continuing these through the summer and will announce more times and places soon.

What’s going on with BYC? Been hearing a few odd rumours circling round so hopefully this will clear some things up –

Demolition of the site on Edward Street is well and truly underway. This is the start of a major redevelopment of the building, due to open on the same site in June 2025.

Above shows an early visual of the new plans for the building. Due to soaring costs the original plans sadly had to be reduced in size, but this new building still provides a huge update on what we had before.

The west side of the building is being demolished and replaced, with the entrance being moved onto the corner of Edward Street and an outdoor space created at the back. The east half of the building that the skatepark sits in is remaining and being refitted on the inside.

This will create a fully accessible youth centre with upgrades to all our existing facilities as well as new additions such as a cafe space, and counselling and GP rooms. On the top floor you can see the extension to the skatepark which will provide a larger seating area overlooking the city, toilets and extra amenities.

As mentioned, our initial plans to provide a temporary skate facility in Brighton while all this was going on have proven much harder than they originally seemed due to lack of available spaces. But we are still looking and hope to provide somewhere throughout the winter months, should somewhere come up. In the mean time we’ll be out and about at local parks as well as planning some cool trips, events and activities throughout the summer. Keep an eye on us here to find out the latest.

Our office and some of our youth activities have moved to 94 Gloucester Road. This is a smaller space and so we’re not able to offer as much as we’re used to but we’re slowly building our youth programme back up and welcome regular young members of BYC to join in. Call, email or contact Brighton Youth Centre on Instagram if you want info on what’s going on currently.

We’re extremely grateful to everyone who visits the centre over the years, and are sorry for the disruption. This work is essential to securing BYC’s long term 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.
