Tickets and Art Passes


Two staff members behind the Welcome Desk

The RWA is a registered charity and does not receive any regular national Government funding to fund exhibitions, deliver creative activities in some of Bristol's most under-served communities, 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.
