A Little About This Space

With its pretty promenades and Victorian styling, the Great Western Arcade is the perfect counterpoint to the sleek Bullring centre nearby. Instead of repeating high street names, the Arcade charms shoppers with independent brands and unique ideas. So if you're looking to launch in central Birmingham – this ready to go store could be a great choice.

A former menswear store, the space has a traditional shopfront, which contrasts nicely with a modern fit-out inside. The ceiling is painted black, the wooden flooring is distressed and there's pendant lighting throughout. You'll have lots of space to fix shelving – some brackets are already in place – and two changing rooms at the back. There's extra storage room at the back plus access to a basement level.

Your nextdoor neighbours will include a sushi restaurant, designer exchange store, footwear boutique and a pen shop. The Arcade bridges Colmore Row business district with the high street – so you’ll be meeting shoppers all week long.


Great Western Arcade features 35 stores across 150,000 sq ft of retail space.
73,000 people visit the Arcade each week, adding up to almost 4 million each year.
Key tenants include Liquor Store, Jaeger, Mr Simms sweet shop and Anderson & Hill deli.
GWA is on the doorstep of the Colmore Business District, home to 35,000 employees.
