Day Trip to Birmingham

I had a great day out earlier in the week. I took a coach trip to Birmingham, only an hour away, and went to the Museum and Art Gallery. These statues are in Victoria Square, so as soon as I saw them I knew I wasn't far from my destination.

This is when I knew I'd reached the right place as I'd come to see the pre-raphelite collection and this Rossetti image beckoned me in.

Unfortunately I can't show you any photos of the inside as I had to sign a waiver prohibiting me from publishing my photos in order for me to be allowed to take photos in the first place. This is a real shame as I can't show you some wonderful paintings and artifacts which would publicise the place. You'll just have to take my word for it that it is well worth a visit if you love pre-raphelites with works by Rossetti, Burne-Jones, Maddox Brown to name but a few. Really famous works at each turn. I will definately return, the edwardian tea rooms there are also a must.
