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 printmaking and room hire.

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.


We are open from Wednesday – Saturday 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday 10 am – 4 pm.

The Craft Shop is open as normal and the Coffee Shop is open for take-away and outside service only. Everything else will re-open on May 19.
