Room 212 is an Aladdin’s Cave of Bristol art and creativity and has gained a reputation as the go-to place for original, interesting gifts and artwork. Based on the central part of Gloucester Road, Bristol known locally as Glos Rd Central, Room 212 is at the heart of a group of independently owned local shops and galleries. Regular themes tie in with the seasons or Bristol events inspiring artists to produce new and different work.  A highlight is the North Bristol Art Trail at the end of November when Room 212 is a  venue on the trail. In fact Room 212 acts as a permanent home year round for many artists appearing on this long established art trail.

2020 has brought many changes – for us it meant a big clear out and the creation of a lovely big gallery space in the back area. Each artist now has their own area. Once a month we’ll feature a theme or invite a guest artist to put on an exhibition

Room 212 was a finalist for the Bristol Life Awards 2018 in the Retailer category and owner Sarah Thorp was a judge for the awards in 2019. We were finalists in the Creative category in 2017 and also for The Small Awards in 2017
