Cultural breaks in spring

Cultural holidays in spring

If you’re looking to book a cultural holiday this spring, look no further than home. After all, England’s green and pleasant land brought the world its most famous poet, Shakespeare, whose plays you can view at Stratford-upon-Avon. Fancy yourself a bit of an art critic? Kent’s romantic sunsets and dramatic seascapes inspired Turner, and it’s easy to see why. Meanwhile, Eastbourne boasts three leading contemporary art galleries along its 20-mile coastal trail. Lose yourself in a West End musical at the Bristol Hippodrome or discover a music venue nestled amidst 13th century caves beneath a Victorian music hall in Nottingham.
