The Harris Art Gallery in Preston is considered as one of the leading museums and contemporary art venues in the region. The fine art collection contains paintings, drawings and watercolours, prints, photographs and sculpture, and there are several special exhibitions, including an exhibition of works by Bruce Nauman, one of the most influential artists of our time. The show includes his epic work, Changing Light Corridor with Rooms, last exhibited in the UK in 1989.

After lunch, we move on to the Haworth Art Gallery in Accrington to see the world-famous Tiffany glass collection - the largest public collection in Europe – donated by Accrington born Joseph Briggs who was a designer for Tiffany. The collection includes the iconic Peacock vase.

We finish at Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery. It hosts a wide range of exhibitions and has collections of Japanese prints, the Hart collection of books, coins and medieval manuscripts, an award-winning South Asian gallery, the history of Blackburn, the Egyptian Mummy, Fine and Decorative Art and the Bowdler collection of world beetles.
