The Biscuit Factory

About

The Biscuit Factory is the UK’s largest independent art, craft and design gallery set in the heart of Newcastle’s cultural quarter. Housed in a former Victorian warehouse, the beautiful and dynamic gallery is set over two floors, displaying a range of exciting contemporary fine art, sculpture, original prints and jewellery, quality craftsmanship and design-led homewares.

The Biscuit Factory hosts four major exhibitions a year, changing on a quarterly basis and representing the work of around 250 artists each season, so there is always something new to see every time you visit.

Buying art is a personal experience and whether you are a seasoned collector or a first-time buyer, our professional and friendly team are here to assist you with your choices, and thanks to the interest-free Own Art purchase scheme, buying art is simple and affordable.

You can find the gallery's in-house cafe The Factory Kitchen on the first floor, which serves a range of freshly prepared salads, cakes and homemade ices. Alternatively, visit the adjoining restaurant, artisan - listed in the prestigious Good Food Guide - for a stylish and unforgettable a la carte dining experience.
