If you have passed Carlton Hill, you may have noticed the flags on the Nelson Monument. Yesterday was the anniversary of the battle of Trafalgar, which took place on 21 October 1805. You can visit the monument to learn more and if you climb to the top, you can get some of the best views in Edinburgh. On a nautical theme, you could also visit our exhibition ‘The Artist & the Sea’ at the City Art Centre.
The City Art Centre is also getting ready for the opening of two new exhibitions on Saturday: ‘William Gear (1915 – 1997): The painter that Britain forgot’ and
‘Jagged Generation: William Gear’s Contemporaries and Influences’. I had a quick peek at the galleries as the exhibitions were being installed, and they look great! If you are in Edinburgh at the weekend, do come and visit.
