Description

Britain has many of the world's best museums and galleries, great and small. This sumptuously illustrated guide is a magnificent celebration of them, revealing a treasure trove of riches and a unique record of the nation's life and history. Mark Fisher has travelled across Britain, from the West of Ireland to East Anglia, from the Orkneys to St. Ives, to select the best 350. Richly illustrated and packed with stories about the remarkable men and women who have created, donated and cared for these collections, this is an essential companion for all who love museums and galleries, showing the familiar in a new light and introducing readers to many hidden delights they never knew existed.show more
