Welcome back to the Whitworth! To ensure our visitors, staff & volunteers can be safe, everyone who visits us will need to book a ticket in advance.

Reconnect with our exhibitions and spaces and come see what's new. From, wallpapers, textiles, sculptures, prints to those hidden gems, we have something for everyone.

Our cafe is open but our shop will remain closed for the forseeable future. You can still shop with us online.
