In a fantastic waterside location at the heart of Bristol's harbourside, Arnolfini is one of Europe's leading centres for the contemporary arts, presenting innovative, experimental work in the visual arts, performance, dance, film, music and events, accompanied by a programme of learning and participation activities.

Five exhibition spaces - a theatre/cinema auditorium, Reading Room and Light/Dark Studios - are housed in a Grade II listed, fully accessible building. The converted warehouse also contains one of the country's best arts bookshops as well a café bar with quayside seating.
