Charles I - King And Collector

Asides from being the King, Charles I was a huge collector of art; past masters such as Titian, Holbein, Van Dyke and Rubens were among the artists in his collection. Then (bit awkward) he got executed and his collection was sold off across the world.

For the first time, the collection from 1649 has been reunited in one place at the Royal Academy, with the exhibition containing a mix of sculptures, tapestries, paintings and miniatures. If you’re a classical art lover then this really is a must see!

Where? Burlington House, Piccadilly, Mayfair, London W1J 0BD

How much? Adults £20, Kids under 16 go free with an adult.
