Get to know the area

Spike Island Artspace is named after the floating harbour itself: an area with a fascinating industrial past of ship building set against Bristol’s beautiful harbourside. Set between bustling and alternative North Street and the cargo ship-cafes on Wapping Wharf, you’ll find lots to do close-by.
