Royal West of England Academy

The Royal West of England Academy exists for everyone with an interest in art and design. Our artistic programme presents the best of British art, ranging from famous names of the past to inspiring work by our current Academicians, and brings high profile exhibitions by established artists to Bristol.

The RWA’s aim is to provide an inclusive programme of exhibitions, events and education in order to enhance the knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of art for the widest possible audience.

The RWA is England's only regional Royal Academy of Art - one of only five in total including those in Ireland, Scotland, Wales and London. It is a registered charity which has been self-supporting for over 150 years and possesses an outstanding Grade II* listed building, galleries and permanent fine art collection. The RWA has HM Queen Elizabeth II as its head patron and enjoys the support of leading individuals and businesses in Bristol and beyond.

The RWA Galleries offer the perfect opportunity to entertain staff, associates and clients or to hold lectures, meetings, launches, receptions or intimate dinners in the magnificent RWA building with our exhibitions acting as a unique backdrop.
