Spike Island


    Spike Island is a dynamic arts centre that supports, produces and presents contemporary art and culture. A short walk from Bristol attractions SS Great Britain and the M Shed, Spike Island is free to visit.

    Every year, we programme up to six exhibitions in our museum-scale gallery spaces, including major new commissions and rarely seen existing work by a diverse range of contemporary artists at key stages in their careers. We also host events throughout the year, including talks, screenings and workshops, which provide opportunities to learn more about the art on display, discover a new writer or thinker, and develop new skills.

    Our staff are on hand to answer your questions about our exhibitions and other activities; and our café is a great place to reflect on your experience over coffee and cake, or a light lunch.
