City Space is a vibrant and versatile gallery space located in The Arc, Winchester. It hosts a rolling programme of exhibitions which celebrate the very best of Winchester’s thriving arts and heritage scene.

The exhibitions staged at City Space range from displays drawn from the vast collections cared for by Hampshire Cultural Trust to installations by talented local artists and groups. Every exhibition is brought to life by talks, workshops or other activities such as object-handling sessions, with opportunities to explore new hobbies and interests or simply to lose yourself in another era. With special emphasis on families during the school holidays, the programme includes opportunities for everyone to participate and to celebrate the special quality of the city and its surrounding towns and countryside.

During your visit, browse our exhibition shop, pay a trip to The Gallery and make the most of the many facilities that The Arc has to offer.
