About GWA

Located in the heart of Birmingham’s shopping district, Great Western Arcade is the hub of thriving independent retail in the city. With entrances on Temple Row and Colmore Row, it is the perfect place to deviate from the monotony of the high street and uncover the most unique finds.

GWA is home to award-winning fashion boutiques, hair and beauty salons, food and drink experts, and so much more. Our Grade II listed arcade is loved by the city for its history, as well as its dedication to supporting leading retailers and emerging brands.
