The Ropewalk is a regionally acclaimed centre for the arts housing galleries, Sculpture Garden, Coffee Shop, and Ropery Hall – a venue for live music, theatre and cinema – all housed within a Grade II listed former rope factory. The building, part of the former Hall’s Barton Ropery that closed in 1989, is the longest Grade II listed building in the country and now attracts more than 100,000 visitors every year.

Other facilities at The Ropewalk include a printmaking workshop, artists’ studios, meeting rooms available for outside lets and a picture framing department.
