This tour of ‘Charles I’ is designed for wheelchair users and mobility impaired visitors.

King Charles I amassed one of the most extraordinary art collections of his age, acquiring works by some of the finest artists of the past – Titian, Mantegna, Holbein, Dürer – and commissioning leading contemporary artists such as Van Dyck and Rubens. Yet, following the king’s execution in 1649, his collection was sold off and scattered across Europe. While many works were retrieved by Charles II during the Restoration, others now form the core of European museums such as the Louvre in Paris and the Prado in Madrid.

Join us for this early morning tour to explore the most dazzling treasures of this unique collection reunited in all their glory for the first time.

This event includes refreshments and volunteer support is provided.
