LEEDS BRADFORD

A 20-minute drive from central Leeds,

Lotherton is a fine Edwardian country

home with extensive grounds. Peek

into bedrooms, relax in the drawing

room and imagine a 15-course feast

in the dining room. Former owners the

Gascoignes were great collectors and

the house contains a wonderful range of

furniture, paintings, sculpture, silver, pottery

and porcelain. Outside, there are beautiful

gardens and Lotherton’s wildlife park.

L IMOGES

The Musée des Beaux Arts is housed in

the beautifully-restored, 18th-century

Bishops’ Palace. It covers the town’s

history through Roman artefacts, and has

a collection of Egyptian antiquities and

medieval treasures. There is an excellent

fine-arts collection with paintings from the

Renaissance to some of the most famous

20th-century painters like Renoir and

Valadon. In addition, there is a collection

of etchings and drawings as well as

modern and contemporary sculptures.

The upper storey displays Limoges enamel

from the 12th century to modern day and

is the pride of the museum.
