Baltic, Baltic Shop & Six Riverside restaurant are now open Wednesday to Sunday 10am-6pm. Plan a visit to Baltic here

With a history that stretches back much further than its 2002 opening, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art is the biggest gallery of its kind in the world. Housed in a historic, renovated flour mill on the Gateshead bank of the River Tyne, Baltic present a dynamic, diverse and international programme of contemporary visual art, with an ever-changing calendar of exhibitions and activities designed to give a unique and compelling insight into contemporary artistic practice.

Baltic's year-round programme ranges from blockbuster exhibitions to innovative new work and projects created by artists working within the local community. Visitors can experience innovative and provocative new art, relax, have fun, learn and discover fresh ideas before relaxing with a coffee in their onside cafe which overlooks the magnificent Quayside.

Don't forget to check their website or ask at an info point when you arrive for information about events and activities taking place like Preview Parties, Family Tours, Toddler Tuesdays, Exhibition Explorer Packs for kids and all sorts of themed events for art fans.

All four of Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art spaces are accessible and the centre also offers walking stick stools, mobility scooters, large print information, subtitles on selected Baltic films and sensory equipment. Assistance dogs are also more than welcome.
