Arts & Culture in United Kingdom

Top Places To Visit

British Museum

Part of the London Walks "British Museum" walking tour. Imposing in structure and immense in the breadth of the history it covers, this museum’s story was woven together with great enthusiasm by the guide Kathy. Tidbits from the founder’s story to how the Brits captured the Rosetta Stone to the entire process of mummification, it was a lesson of sorts. The highlight was the Parthenon remains; from the intricate detail of the sculptures which survived the attack to the devastating damage which painfully shows, they seemed to have a life of their own on the walls and the pedestals.

Lord's Cricket Ground

Day 4 in London: I'm a big cricket fan and if you're cricket fan in England, there's one place you just cannot miss. The Mecca for all cricket lovers; The Lords Stadium. I went in for the tour at 11 am (They have hourly tours in the morning and afternoon from 10 am - 2 pm). The tour started with the Long hall, proceeded to the players' dressing rooms & balconies, and ended in the media center. The entry fee and tour is £18/person. The British museum was next on the list, the museum houses a vast collection of world art and artifacts and is free entry. You can easily spend anywhere between an hour to a whole day here, depending on your interest level.

Barbican Gallery

Songlines World Music Awards show where they were going to have three award winners perform. Anoushka Shankar was the draw. And again, I made it to the door 3 mins before start time (phew, what’s with that today I say?!)! I sunk into my chair and the tiredness of the day melted away as Fatoumata Diawara belted haunting Mali melodies and Anoushka Shankar deftly wove Indian classical with Flamenco music. Such talent! I enjoyed the Mali music immensely with a lot of peace themes interwoven throughout (music being banned in north Mali today). The Flamenco was new and took some time to grow on me. My favourite turned out to be Anoushka’s fast paced composition in Raag Jog – made me want to get up and dance! By the interval, the day’s antics caught up with me and I called it a day, missing Tinariwen’s Mali music which concluded the show. For another time.

Speyside Cooperage

In the heart of Scotland’s rolling hills lies Speyside Cooperage, the only working cooperage in the UK where you can experience the ancient art of coopering. Since 1947, the family owned Speyside Cooperage has produced the finest casks from the best American Oak. Today the cooperage continues to work and produce the age-old product, still using traditional methods and tools. Although shipped across the world, many of the casks remain in Scotland, providing a vital ingredient in Scotland’s whisky making process

Talisker Distillery

Has a stunning setting beside a west Skye sea loch. Visitors can taste their whiskies in a vaulted barrel room, surrounded by handsome oak containers holding whisky which will sit for decades before it’s enjoyed Tasting notes ” Highly complex & unconventional whisky. Peppery flavour adds to its warming spiciness, it explodes on the palate”
