There are just two weeks left to see Splendours of the Subcontinent: A Prince’s Tour of India 1875-6 exhibition in the north of England before it moves on to Leicester.

The free exhibition, which contains Indian works of art from the Royal Collection, tells the story of the grand tour of the Indian Subcontinent made by the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) in 1875-6.

The exhibition has been developed in collaboration with Bradford Council’s Museums and Galleries Service and Royal Collection Trust, and runs at Cartwright Hall in Bradford until 18 June.

Since opening in March Splendours of the Subcontinent: A Prince’s Tour of India 1875-6 has proved extremely popular, with a well over 18,000 visitors enjoying the special exhibition to date.

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.
