The Ropewalk Museum

Welcome to the Ropewalk Website.

The Ropewalk is a regionally acclaimed centre for the arts housing four gallery spaces, a sculpture garden, coffee shop and facilities for room hire, printmaking and picture framing.

Ropery Hall is small scale venue for film, theatre, comedy and music.

The centre is situated slightly to the east of the Humber Bridge, on the southern bank of the River Humber. Stretching out towards the bank, at almost a quarter of a mile long, The Ropewalk was initially part of a rope making factory; opening in 1767, the factory eventually closed in 1989.


New Ceramics


Sue Dunne

Sue Dunne’s beautiful floral ceramics were so popular with our customers back in May during her Box Gallery exhibition, that we now have on sale a selection of her hand crafted tiles. Priced at £20 each, they could easily be incorporated into a colour scheme within your home, framed to make a one off piece of art, or used as coasters. The choice is yours!
