RIBA Walking Tours - The Ropewalks: Growth, Decline and Regeneration
Discover an area which once played a crucial role in the growth of a city as a world class seaport. Evidence of this can still be seen in its large collection of former factories, warehouses and merchants’ houses. Since the late 1990’s, the Ropewalks has been redeveloped, bringing derelict premises back to life and creating new buildings and open spaces. See a range of architectural styles in buildings such as FACT, Alma de Cuba, The Bridewell and The Royal Institution in this vibrant and popular district.
