The Biscuit Factory is one of the UK’s largest commercial art galleries, set in the heart of Newcastle’s cultural quarter. Housed in a former Victorian warehouse, the gallery is set over two floors with exposed beams and brickwork, providing the backdrop to exciting displays of contemporary fine art. Established in 2002, the gallery exhibits a broad selection of original artwork by artists from across the UK, ranging from small craft to fine art. It also sells a diverse collection of contemporary jewellery, design-led homewares, stationery and gifts.
The Biscuit Factory also has an in-house café, The Factory Kitchen, and an adjoining à la carte restaurant, artisan, headed up by ‘North East Chef of the Year’ winner Andrew Wilkinson. In addition, we offer a number of affordable spaces for hire, ranging from small private meeting rooms to a stylish, modern 300-capacity event venue, The Biscuit Room, complete with its own comfortable lounge and bar. The Biscuit Room plays host to weddings, corporate dinners, and charity events.
The Biscuit Factory is open seven days a week and admission is free.
