God’s House Tower to reopen to the public next month


‘a space’ arts and God’s House Tower have announced that God’s House Tower will reopen to the public on July 9th.

This is a huge moment for Southampton’s newest arts and heritage venue, which had to temporarily close just six months after opening, and after a seven year, £3.1million refurbishment project.

Now the team are getting ready to welcome the public once again, with a new programme of exhibitions and events, new treats in the cafe, and a new outdoor courtyard to enjoy.

Visitors will soon be able to book a Tower Pass to see Stories Behind the Stones, which includes access to the stunning GHT rooftop, with views across Southampton Water,

In order to comply with Covid safety advice, the following guidance will be in place once visitors are inside the building:

  • One-way routes and safe distancing guidelines will be in place throughout GHT
  • All visitors are required to wear face coverings, apart from those who are exempt
  • Hand sanitiser will be available in key areas, along with increased cleaning regimes in the GHT building
  • The GHT Cafe will operate a table service to ensure distancing is maintained

Venue manager Hannah Preston said: “This is a big moment for the GHT community, and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back. Over lockdown we asked GHT friends and customers what we could do to improve the GHT experience and have tried to reflect this whilst balancing Covid safety requirements while still offering the same friendly, welcoming and inspiring experience.”

Opening hours will be Friday / Saturday 10am-5pm, Sunday 10am-4pm

The building will be now be welcoming schools and private hires from Tuesday to Thursday.
