Situated on the south bank of the River Tyne in Gateshead, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art is the UK’s largest dedicated contemporary art gallery. They have an international reputation for commissioning cutting-edge temporary exhibitions and have presented the work of over 460 artists of 60 nationalities in 220 exhibitions to date.
With 2,600 square meters of art space, Baltic is also home to an on-site café serving delicious, sustainable food and drinks; Baltic Shop which offers cool and quirky gifts; a Library and Sensory Room; fantastic views over the Quayside; a Learning Lounge for young families; and at the heart of Baltic’s community you’ll find Front Room – a space where you can enjoy a warm welcome, free hot drink and a kind conversation.
Plus, you can dine with a panoramic cityscape view at Baltic’s rooftop restaurant, Six. Their menus feature the best seasonal, local produce and are available for brunch, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea. Or, if you just fancy a tipple, their bar serves great cocktails, fine wines and craft beers.
Baltic welcomes everyone whether you’re there for the art, community, or to take in the iconic riverside views.
