The phrase hidden gem must surely apply to the Barber Institute of Fine Art in leafy Edgebaston, a few miles from Birmingham city centre. An Art Deco delight of a building, inside the architectural style continues with furniture from the period. And that’s before we even mention the art. There can’t be many places where you don’t need to spend a bean to enjoy masterpieces by Simone Martini, Bellini, Rubens, Murillo, Turner, Rossetti, Degas, Rodin, Manet, Monet, Magritte and Gainsborough. This place is home to major paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints and despite its small size is often praised by visitors for its quiet and serenity, with no crowds to spoil the mood. And if you’re a classical fan, the institute hosts regular lunchtime concerts hosted by music students from Birmingham University as part of the programme of temporary exhibitions, lectures, workshops and family events that run throughout the year.
