Travel bucket list idea:
Kettle’s Yard art gallery
Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom (UK)|www.kettlesyard.co.uk|
Part of the University of Cambridge, Kettle’s Yard was originally the private home of Jim Ede, curator at the Tate Gallery in the 1920s and ’30s. The beauty of Kettle’s Yard is that it still feels like a private home, yet houses one of the most impressive collections of 20th-century art in the country.
Getting there & doing it
Kettle’s Yard is located at the intersection of Castle and Northampton Streets. The number C1 bus runs from the train station to nearby Bridge Street (walk over Magdalene Bridge to reach Castle Street) or a taxi from the station takes approximately 15 minutes.
Check the website to see if you need to pre-book tickets. Before you go, take a look at their online guide to the five most important exhibits.
When to do it
The gallery is open all year round, Tuesday to Sunday. Closed Monday.
