Blow away the winter blues. Restore your soul with a visit to our current exhibitions. Open every day in the main gallery with our Winter Open from 6th December; smaller works by 50 local and regional artists, perfect for presents or treating yourself, on till the New Year. Our shop and mini-gallery is closed for a refit, opening again on 24th January. See “What’s on” for more details.
Lyme Bay Arts is a community-based enterprise of artists, makers and art organisations from the Southwest. It runs two permanent exhibition venues on the Symondsbury Estate in Dorset, organises outreach showcases in the UK and abroad, generates promotion in the media, and (subject to current restrictions) provides its associates with educational and social events like talks, workshops, demonstrations and mentoring. We are also developing an online selling facility, which is growing by the day!
Our address is The Gallery, Symondsbury Estate, Symondsbury, Bridport DT6 6HG.
We are usually open daily from 10:30-16:30, but if you’re coming a long way specially to visit, please call first to make sure the main gallery is open – it is closed for a few days for rehanging before each new show. See this page for our holiday opening times for 2021/22.
While you are here, there are several other shops and a café to visit, as well as country walks on the estate and animals to see.
