About

Free virtual exhibitions

The ancestral home of Lord Byron is a treasure trove of the rare and beautiful and through the wonders of technology you can explore sections of the former Augustinian priory and some of their most interesting recent exhibitions. Feast your eyes on a particularly dashing portrait of the pin-up of Romantic poetry from the National Portrait Gallery, which was on display last year as part of the Portraits Coming Home initiative. Chuckle at some Late-Georgian satirical prints or cheer yourself up with the amusing prints and drawings of contemporary artist David Shrigley - Kindness which highlights the obscurities of the Human Condition, mocking the often benign and casual way we live our daily lives.

As part of Lace Unveiled you can see work by contemporary artists inspired by lace on display in the grand rooms, including works by Lisbon-based Joana Vasconcelos, a video commission by artist Joy Buttress and designer Manolis Papastavrou. You can even take a virtual stroll along a frosty stretch of the curiously named Monks Stew Pond in the Abbey’s grounds and experience Score For Newstead by Shane Waltener.
