We aim to make Spike Island accessible to as many people as possible. This page provides useful access information ahead of your visit. You can also download a pdf version of this access guide.
We have an accessible building with lift access to the first floor and mezzanine floor, and accessible toilets on the ground and mezzanine floor. We welcome assistance dogs and offer the free use of a wheelchair and portable fold-up stools for your comfort whilst in the gallery.
Our dedicated Front of House team is on hand to help you and accommodate any access requirements you may have.
Large print information about our exhibitions is displayed on the gallery doors and walls. Audio guides to our exhibitions are available via QR codes in the gallery. Further details can be found in large print and audio guides which are available upon request from staff at reception.
We offer a range of events and activities relating to our exhibitions, for more information about these please visit our programme page.
