In October 1875, the Prince of Wales set off on a four month tour of India and neighbouring countries.

An exhibition developed in collaboration with the Royal Collection Trust and our Bradford Museums and Galleries service is currently underway at Cartwright Hall.

'Splendours of the Subcontinent' tells the story of this grand tour through some of the finest Indian works of art that were presented to the Prince during his visit.

A golden opportunity to feast your eyes on some of the spectacular treasures showered on the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII, during his 10,000 mile odyssey to the Indian sub-continent in 1875-6.

For the family there is an Animal Crackers Family Trail whereby you have to look out for some fantastic objects and see how many animals you can find!  

The children can dress-up in some fabulous clothes of which the people wore back then.
