Welcome to Piccadilly Arcade.

Proof that bricks & mortar

retail is here to stay.


As customers become pickier, the art of customer-care becomes part of the sell.


A smile, a handshake, a knowledgeable nod. Isn't that what it's all about?


Chance encounters, lasting impressions, and overall brand-building.

01. The Arcade.

  • The arcade houses a wide variety of some of the best independent retailers the city has to offer – a must for local residents and visitors from further afield.

02. History.

  • With over 100 years of history, the former luxury cinema first opened its doors in 1910. The cinema was then transformed into Piccadilly Arcade in 1925.

03. Location

  • Easily accessible – a short stroll from Birmingham New Street Station, bridging New Street and Stephenson Street and Open 7 days a week.

04. Overview.

  • With artistic ceiling murals and classic architecture reminiscent of that of the old cinema this shopping destination embraces its routes and history.

05. Design.

  • Originally designed by Nicol & Nicol in 1910. The sloped, attractive floor shows where a cinema screen and rows of seats once were.

06. Details.

  • Ceiling murals by Paul Maxfield run throughout Piccadilly Arcade, and many shop fronts are still uniform in their classic appearance.
