A gallery to enjoy art

With an independent and welcoming feel, THE ART ROOM Topsham is a gallery to enjoy looking at and talking about art.

Our refurbished premises are in a historic building on the quay in Topsham, a sophisticated town alongside the River Exe and boasting a wonderful array of cultural and retail facilities for visitors. 

There are also many tranquil places to sit along the picturesque river frontage.
