From Constable and Turner to Hirst and Emin, England has bred groundbreaking artists. We are spoilt for choice with galleries. Choose private tours of the Tate galleries in London, Liverpool or Cornwall's St Ives for a walk through art history. Hire meeting rooms in an old Tyneside mill packed with contemporary works at the Baltic or marvel at David Hockney prints after presentations at Ferens Art Gallery in Hull. Grand concert halls double up as conference centres like the glassy Sage Gateshead, designed by Lord Norman Foster, and the old-school Victorian Scarborough Spa complex. Cultural hubs on the south coast make great business venues like the vibrant seafront Brighton Centre and the opulent, regency Royal Pavilion.
