The Seafront Office
The Seafront Office is located near the Brighton Palace Pier, and is our centre for seafront maintenance, advice, lifeguards, sports facilities and lockers.
Due to COVID-19 we are currently not able to open the seafront office or offer a first-aid service.
Location and opening times
The Seafront Office is located between the 2 piers on the lower promenade at:

Brighton BN1 2FN
Phone 01273 292 716
We are open to the public from 9.30am to 5pm in the low season and 9am to 7pm in the summer months.
The Seafront Office is responsible for:
- advice and enforcement of the bylaws
- operating the lifeguard service (seasonal)
- beach huts and boat lockers
- seafront playgrounds
- seafront maintenance and repairs
- the Bandstand
- seafront sports facilities
The seafront area we cover is from Hove Lagoon through to Saltdean Undercliff. The office is open to the public to seek for safety advice, lost property enquiries and information on how to book seafront facilities.
We run a lost child centre and work closely with the local police on tackling anti-social behaviour.
The Seafront Office also helps with events along the coastline, as well as the upkeep of various council-owned seafront properties.
We operate a first-aid post all year round and lifeguard service from May to September each year.
The Seafront Officers are trained lifeguards. Each quad bike they use is equipped with an AED (automated external defibrillator), oxygen and a first aid kit to respond to incidents.
In the event of an emergency please dial 999, we have direct links with Solent Coastguard, Brighton RNLI, and all emergency services.
