“About Tai Kwun – Centre for Heritage and Arts”   


“Arts, culture and heritage” is one of the strategic areas of charitable contributions of The Hong Kong Jockey Club (the Club). The Central Police Station (CPS) Revitalisation Project is the largest heritage conservation and revitalisation project undertaken by the Club, in partnership with the Government of the HKSAR.

The CPS compound comprises three declared monuments of the former Central Police Station, Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison, with 16 historic buildings and outdoor spaces on a 13,600-square-metre site in the heart of Central. An international-grade art gallery and an auditorium have been added to contribute to the adaptive reuse of the whole site.
