“Ascot Studios offer advice to new and existing art collectors, and exclusive access to high quality original paintings from contemporary artists”


The Gallery & Studios

The exhibition & studio space is located in the beautiful & historic Roman village of Ribchester, in the heart of the Ribble Valley. Over 2500 sq.ft. in size and located within Bee Mill, the gallery space is a converted industrial north light building, the original features of the mill have been incorporated into the space. The enormous amount of natural light lends itself perfectly for the exhibition and production of large scale paintings and sculpture. Throughout the year there is a constantly rotating selection of original & collectible artwork on display from our artists. Corporate and private commissions are welcomed.
