about our spaces

When it comes to our spaces, versatility is the watchword. Tobacco Dock offers 16,000 sqm space to play with, over two stunning levels. We have 57 spaces in an assortment of capacities that can be used individually or combined to create the ideal layout for your event. Many of our spaces boast glass frontages, streaming natural light, flexible layouts and quayside views.

Whether it's the timber beams in our ground-level spaces, exposed brick barrel-ceilinged vaults or the York stone underfoot, the rich history of the building can be read in the multitude of original features on show throughout the venue. By contrast, our technological infrastructure is about as cutting-edge as you can find, with generous WiFi provision and state-of-the-art AV installations and support.

spaces for all events

From the breath-taking Great Gallery, which can seat up to 1470 theatre style, to the smaller, bright Quayside spaces and unique courtyards, to the self-contained Dock Gallery, our spaces can be hired separately or combined to create a bespoke layout to fit your event.
