1. Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, Cornwall
Following wishes expressed in her will, Barbara Hepworth’s family turned her St Ives home and studio into a public gallery in 1976, shortly after the artist’s death. Now owned and operated by the Tate, it features the largest permanent collection of works by the modernist sculptor, with many of the sculptor’s personal favourites on display in a small but picturesque garden overlooking the sea.
Inside, her living room and workshop remain almost untouched, offering insight into the daily working life of one of Britain’s most prolific twentieth-century artists.
