What is The Higgins Art Gallery?

The Higgins Art Gallery and Museum is located in the historic buildings of Castle Brewery, and the adjoining Victorian family home, both built by the Higgins family in the mid-19th Century. The Higgins Bedford unites on one site three cultural venues: Cecil Higgins Art Gallery, Bedford Museum and Bedford Gallery.

The Higgins Bedford showcases wonderful and varied collections including the Cecil Higgins Collection of fine and decorative arts, with its world-class watercolour and print collections and unique groups of work by the designers William Burges and Edward Bawden. The watercolour collection includes works by Turner, Constable, Cotman and Blake, whilst the print collection includes works by Picasso, Goya, Munch and Bonnard alongside many others.
