This school year, one of my main priorities is to make more of my weekends and not allow them to become subsumed by work. I've been researching some places to visit within a reasonable drive that are a little more off the beaten track, rather than falling into the habit of always going to the same museums and galleries I enjoy in London. Top of my list is the Watts Gallery in Surrey, which, though I am not a huge fan of Watts' paintings, looks like a fascinating place to learn more about Victorian art and culture in a beautiful setting. I am also desperate to get to the Fry Gallery in Essex, Kelmscott in Oxfordshire and Compton Verney in Warwickshire. It's easy to think that all the good places to go are in London, but it couldn't be further from the truth!
