Welcome to Watermans

Watermans is an arts centre on the banks of the Thames in Brentford, West London. Our beautiful location opposite Kew Gardens plays host to independent cinema, the best in children's theatre, many workshops and courses and much more. We also HIRE our theatre and other spaces.

We want everyone to be inspired by the Arts, so we always aim to keep ticket prices affordable but if you're a regular visitor,why not BECOME A FRIEND and get a host of benefits - it's just £22.50 for single membership, and £10 extra to add free parking for a year!

We have a spacious cafe/restaurant - find out more here.
