A UNIQUE AND EXCITING COLLECTIVE OF ARTISTS STUDIOS AND GALLERIES ON A FORMER INDUSTRIAL SITE, SET ON THE MAGNIFICENT NORTHUMBERLAND COAST
The Old Bath House, which lies less than a mile from the beautiful sweep of Druridge bay, is all that remains of Broomhill Colliery which closed in the 1960s. After a long shift underground, thousands of miners filthy with grime and coal dust would return to the Bath House for a well earned shower, and it remains now as the last monument to this mining heritage.
Whilst retaining much of its original character, the building has now been developed to house a series of gallery, workshop and studio spaces in which a number of local artists and craftspeople have turned this former industrial site into a must-see destination for art lovers in the region.
With a full programme of events, exhibitions and workshops available, along with ample parking and coffee and cake, The Old Bath House offers a unique opportunity for visitors to buy or get involved with art in Northumberland.
