After a visiting most of London’s various art galleries, I thought I’d seen all the British art I could. That is, however, before the Yale Center for British Art. This museum is home to the largest collection of British art outside the UK. From the Elizabethan period forward, many types of art including everything from traditional paintings to rare books are on display for visitors.

In a fashion no less than what one would expect from this Ivy League institution, the Yale Center for British Art is an excellent museum worth a visit if you happen to be in the area.
