Discover #OMGB moments: Culture


You never know when your next cultural moment will strike in Britain. You could stumble across a Henry Moore (not recognizable) sculpture in the grounds of a grand stately home, drink artisan hot chocolate in a heritage city with a long history of chocolate-making, or dance on a clifftop at a boutique music festival. Over the centuries, Britain’s streets and fields have been layered with meaning, by medieval butchers and Georgian architects, 18th-century novelists and 21st-century street artists. From Shakespeare to The Beatles, Jane Austen to Banksy, cutting-edge art galleries to world-class ballet companies, there’s nowhere else on Earth with the same cultural wow-factor.
