RIBA North

Open Monday to Sunday, 10am to 5.50pm

RIBA North is RIBA's national architecture centre on the Liverpool waterfront. Open from 27 October 2023, Tate Liverpool and RIBA North have established a partnership to explore art, architecture, and the environment through exhibitions, commissions, and events. The Tate café and shop will also open from this date.

The centre is a place for everyone to discover more about architecture, with exhibitions, talks, tours and digital city model. RIBA North is an inspirational resource for both our members and the public - championing architects, architecture and good design. A joint programme will engage audiences from the galleries of RIBA North during the transformation of Tate Liverpool.
