Want to explore the street art in New Brighton? You're in the right place!

Seaside town New Brighton is home to over twenty colourful street art pieces, all transforming the sides of buildings and street corners.

Most of the pieces are in easy walking distance from each other, meaning you can embark on a fun walking tour of the town to take them all in.

We’ve listed some of the New Brighton street art pieces and where you’ll find them.

 

Seeking is Finding - Waterloo Road

A nod to New Brighton’s coastal history, this mural painted by duo Nomad Clan depicts a shipwreck and smugglers luring ships to the shore. The duo are best known for painting murals that link to an area’s history, just like this one.

New Brighton Peter Pan - Windsor Street

Found on the corner of Windsor Street and Victoria Road, the New Brighton Peter Pan mural is a celebration of the town’s history as a tourist destination. The mural shows Peter Pan flying over historic New Brighton landmarks including the lighthouse and promenade and the former grand tower.

 

I See the Sea - Windsor Street

I See the Sea is a fun and vibrant piece by artist Ben Eine that depicts that famous line that visitors shout as they approach the seaside. The yellow and orange mural is huge and fills the side of the building on which it lies.

The Black Pearl - Hope Street

The Black Pearl was once an interactive artwork that sat upon the shores of the River Mersey. After surviving storms and even an arson attack, the ship was eventually destroyed by the waves of the Mersey in March 2020. The Black Pearl mural by Art by Alexander forever immortalised a New Brighton icon of the past.

 

I Heart NB - Virginia Road

On Virginia Road you’ll find the mural by Fanakapan that says I Heart NB (New Brighton). The unique mural contains four balloons spelling out the quote, including three silver letters and a red heart. This clever mural gives the impression that the balloons are ready to fly away. Super cool.

Belladonna is a huge, colourful mural by French artist Nerone. The mural depicts Neron’s signature style of bright colours and dripping flowers, and is one of the biggest in New Brighton.

 

Otto - Waterloo Road

Another “rude kid” from Dotmasters, Otto was the first to appear in New Brighton and overlooks Waterloo Road. The mural shows Otto painting red paint over a wallpaper background, very rude of him indeed.

Torn but not Broken - Rockpoint Records, Victoria Road

Above one of New Brighton’s most popular shops, Rockpoint Records, you’ll find the mural Torn but not Broken by artist Mr Penfold. The piece seemingly depicts torn paper, revealing new, colourful layers beneath, hence the name.

 

Insa Mansions - Victoria Road/Waterloo Road

Found on the building that now houses New Brighton Post Office, this is one of the town’s biggest and brightest pieces of street art. The swirling pattern by Insa can also be found on furniture and clothing too!
