Celebrating The National Gallery's 200th anniversary

We are proud to be a part of The National Gallery’s 200th anniversary celebrations by helping make iconic national art paintings accessible to local communities. This is your rare chance to see these masterpieces closer to home in selected museums/art galleries across the UK. The regional exhibitions running from May are called ‘National Treasures by Rail’.

Free your hands to free your mind

Let us help start your art journey of exploration, escapism or re-discovery; get on board and let us take care of the ‘drive’ so you can truly relax and unwind, hands-free. With frequent and faster services along the East and West Coastway, it is now even easier to get to Brighton giving you more time to soak in the experience of seeing a masterpiece up close and personal.

Rembrandt’s ‘Self-portrait at the age of 34’

Brighton Museum and Art Gallery - 10th May until 4th August 2024

Rembrandt was an accomplished portrait painter in the 17th century with his self-portrait work being some of the most talked about in art history. His ‘Self-portrait painting at age 34’ will be exhibited alongside photographic work from local 13-16 year olds who considered how they would like to be seen by their peers, when, like Rembrandt, they reach the age of 34.
