  • Gotta Have It

    These cool typographical maps are pride of place in the Muddy office. We reckon they'd look rocking in your sitting room too.

  • modern art Barbara Hepworth River and Rowing Museum statue round shape egg-like

    The best of Barbara

    The River & Rowing Museum in Henley is gaining quite the reputation for its small but perfectly formed exhibitions. Following Hockney and Matisse comes this bijou tribute to sculptor Barbara Hepworth. We likey.

  • HOT NEW SPRING EXHIBITIONS

    You can't beat London's museums for a culture fix. So unleash your inner Brian Sewell and check out these must-see Spring exhibitions - featuring Grayson Perry, Hockney and, um, Arnie's Terminator suit.

  • BRUSH UP ON YOUR ART

    Girlfriends, wine and, er, paintbrushes! The Muddy team tries out the new craze for Brush Parties with *cough* impressive results.

    Fancy zipping down to London for a little cultural soiree next month? If so, here’s an idea from Catherine, the immensely funky (*sniff) editor of the brand new Muddy Warwickshire.

  • boat on lake in blenheim palace

    See this: Christmas at Blenheim

    I think it's fair to say that when Blenheim Palace decides to do something, it does it with bells, whistles, fanfares and a whole lot of style. The new illuminated Christmas walkway is no different.

  • Storms, War and Shipwrecks

    The Ashmolean's Summer exhibition is an underwater triumph, a 200-strong exhibition focuses on objects rescued from the bottom of the sea around Sicily, including pieces from an incredible 'flat pack' church and bronze battering rams once mounted on the prows of Roman warships.
