Welcome to Watermans

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

Watermans is a social enterprise organisation that relies on our supporters to keep providing a wide ranging programme for all communities in West London. Why not BECOME A FRIEND and support our work - it's just £22.50 for single membership which brings a host of benefits - and £10 extra to add free parking for a year!

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