Following the latest advice from the Government, it is with much regret that RWA has taken the decision to close with immediate effect. Read our full statement here.


The RWA is a registered charity and does not receive any regular national Government funding to fund exhibitions or to maintain its beautiful listed building. Visitors are charged a small entrance fee for most exhibitions, which covers entry to all the galleries and exhibitions on show that day. The RWA aims to keep prices as low as possible and our visitors tell us we offer excellent value for money. 


On the Door

  • Adults: £7.95 (includes an 80p donation)

  • RWA Art Pass Holders: FREE Purchase an Art Pass
