RIBA South West and Wessex

Welcome to the RIBA in the South West

The south west is one of the most attractive and interesting parts of the UK. Our coastline, our countryside, our cities, towns and villages are second to none in their enduring appeal.

From the ancient maritime cities of Bristol and Plymouth to the industrial heritage of Cornwall and Swindon, and the landscaped beauty of the Cotswolds and South Dorset Downs, our region is one of beauty, innovation and enterprise.

Through our members and the RIBA national network, we work with partners and organisations across the region and the UK to champion better buildings, communities and the environment.
