Britain’s Top cultural experiences for 2021

From a new Banksy tour in Bristol to a deep dive into climate change in London, Britain promises a wealth of interactive experiences to enjoy when we’re all able to travel again. And with 24 January 2021 marking the UNESCO International Day of Education, you can seize the moment and start dreaming of the top cultural experiences that await on a future trip to Britain.

Britain’s maritime history

You can look forward to delving into maritime history at The Box in Plymouth, the south-west coast’s brand new cultural hub. The fully-accessible museum is currently showing a commemorative exhibition marking 400 years since the Pilgrims made their maiden voyage to America, titled Mayflower 400: Legend and Legacy. Co-curated with the Wampanoag Advisory Committee, the 12 new exhibitions will showcase 300 illuminating objects until 18 September 2021. There is also an outdoor Mayflower Trail key locations in the city.

Modern art al fresco

Imagine getting under the skin of Banksy’s classics on Where the Wall, Bristol’s new self-guided smartphone tour. Narrated by the ‘godfather of graffiti’, John Nation, the app reveals 13 key locations around the city and gives a rich insight into Bristol’s artistic heritage.

Another way to experience Britain’s outdoor art scene will be along England’s Creative Coast, showcasing seven new installations from famous contemporary artists in Essex, Kent, and Sussex. Creating an artistic trail along the southern coastline, it will be the world’s first art GeoTour, incorporating global positioning system technology to form a unique treasure hunt experience.

Cutting-edge culture in London

London’s Royal Academy has a packed schedule of exhibitions for 2021, including exhibitions of Irish painter Francis Bacon and English artists John Constable and David Hockney. You can also plan to see Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life, at the Tate Modern from 29 March 2021 until 27 March 2022.

If you’re a style guru, you can look forward to exploring Britain’s fashion history at London’s Fashion and Textile Museum. The Boutique in 1960s Counterculture exhibition reveals how Chelsea’s boutiques sparked one of the world’s biggest fashion revolutions and run from 3 September 2021 until January 2022.

London’s V&A is also set for a show-stopping exhibition in 2021. Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser delve into the origins of Lewis Carrol’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its 157-year history, with tickets available from 27 March to 31 December 2021.
