Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in Norwich

A nice day trip out of London is a visit to the Norman Foster designed Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts on the campus of East Anglia University in Norwich (about two hours by train from Liverpool Street Station). This public art gallery and museum houses a variety of interesting permanent collections, not the least of which is the Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Collection of works spanning 5,000 years of human creativity, with "modern work by artists such as Henry Moore, John Davies, Alberto Giacometti and Francis Bacon" alongside art from Africa, the Pacific, the Americas, Asia, Egypt, medieval Europe and the ancient Mediterranean.
