Writers & Artists

From Dickens to Doyle, Hepworth to Hockney, explore the cultural impact writers and artists have had on British society. The Tate Modern is an unmissable exploration of contemporary art. Based in a former power station on London’s Bankside, the space houses the country's most valuable modern art collection. Its permanent collection has the likes of Picasso, Rothko and Matisse and its exhibitions are always a must-see. The Hepworth Wakefield in Yorkshire is a tribute to artist Barbara Hepworth. The collection has works by Hepworth and her contemporaries such as Henry Moore. For literature lovers, The Charles Dickens Museum is an intimate voyage through the private life of the famed author. Located on 48 Doughty Street, it's where he wrote Oliver Twist, The Pickwick Papers and Nicholas Nickleby.
