Art on display at Kettle's Yard © whistlepunch
Kettle's Yard is an art lover's dream and one of the finest art galleries in Britain. Originally the private home of Jim Ede (former curator of the Tate), Kettle's Yard houses the impressive art collection that Ede donated to the University of Cambridge in 1966, and the house itself is charming. The gallery's permanent collection consists of mainly 20th and 21st century artists, including Henry Moore and Joan Miro. The informal art gallery space is a popular attraction in Cambridge for tourists and locals alike. Budget at least a couple of hours to do the collection justice and to spend some time soaking up the scenery.
