Britain is a cultural kaleidoscope of fascinating experiences and opportunities offering a window on the nation. Our world-class galleries and collections contain some of the finest art and treasures ever created from Old Masters to new-age wonders. Music-lovers will be enthralled with classical and modern sounds ranging from Bach to Blur. For film buffs, there’s a seemingly unending feast of locations from dramatic castles to sweeping panoramas.  And the literature trail is a real page-turner!

The national collections provide a feast for the eyes whether visitors are art aficionados or keen-to-learn fans. Plus, there are masterpieces in galleries from north to south. Or drop into landscapes that inspired artistic celebrities such as Constable, Turner, Monet and Renoir. Britain brought the world the original ‘boy band’ and visitors can follow the footsteps of the Fab Four. And there’s also opera, music, ballet and theatre – indoor, outdoor, across the nation and throughout the year.

There are plenty of easily-accessible film locations. From landscapes that played starring roles in stirring epics to atmospheric castles and stately homes that really did host the legendary figure. And what a gold mine for seeing where literary heroes penned their immortal words – their homes and the country that inspired them waits to welcome you.
