Cattle Depot Artists Village - Arts Village

This place was built in 1908 and was served as a cattle slaughterhouse for a century of time until it was decommissioned in about 1999.
It is the only surviving pre-war cattle slaughterhouse in Hong Kong and it is also one of the Grade II historic buildings in Hong Kong.
In about 2001, this place underwent a renovation and transformed into an arts village.

Inside the arts village, there are several studios and exhibition halls.
All of these buildings were mainly built by red bricks and stuccos.
There are currently a few tens of tenants in arts village, including some nonprofit art organization or individual artists.

This arts village itself is an interesting place to visit.
It is well worth your time if you are exploring the local art culture of Hong Kong.

The arts village is open to public from 10:00am to 10:00pm, from Mondays to Sundays.
Admission is free.

To reach this place, exit off Whampoa MTR Station Exit D2.
Then, take bus No.12A at Whampoa Garden Public Transport Interchange and get off at China Gas Company Bus Stop.
