How to find us
The Architecture Centre is located in central Bristol, on the harbourside between the Arnolfini gallery and the Youth Hostel.
We would encourage visitors to the Centre to use sustainable modes of transport where possible.
Please note the gallery is occasionally closed for private hire or events. Please check before travelling.
The Architecture Centre is a 15 minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads station. There is a taxi rank outside the station and Buses 8 and 9 will take you to St Augustine's Parade. Temple Meads is a 15 minute journey from Bath Spa and 1 hour 45 minutes from London Paddington.
There are several stops close by in the centre and Marlborough Street Bus Station is a 15 minute walk away.
The M4 and M5 motorways lead into Bristol via the M32. Follow the brown tourist signs to Arnolfini or Youth Hostel. There is no on-street parking outside The Architecture Centre.
