Sharples and Winterstoke Galleries

With beautifully constructed interiors, wooden floors and marble friezes, these 19th century rooms have housed works from the big names in British Art including Turner, Constable, Nash and Hockney. The main galleries are flexible spaces for events from 30-350 people. These galleries are available for evening drinks and parties, launches and film screenings, and for breakfast meetings or all day on Mondays. Hire of the Sharples and Winterstoke Galleries also includes use of our stunning marble landing and historic balcony.
