Explore the landscapes that inspired Thomas Hardy, in this exciting touring exhibition developed by our partners at Wessex Museums

Thomas Hardy, an internationally acclaimed Victorian writer, was inspired by the Wessex landscape and its people.  This exhibition brings together objects and documents exploring important themes in Hardy’s work, including women’s rights, animal welfare, social structure, superstition, the realities of war, and altered relationships with the landscape.  His story is retold in exciting new ways, from period costumes to personal letters, and from art to archaeology.
