Must-See Exhibition Leaves London Soon; Go Today!

turks.jpgTomorrow marks the last day of the incredible Turks exhibit at the Royal Academy of Arts which takes you on a thousand year journey. If you have not managed to navigate your way over to the Royal Academy then Londonist suggests you do it immediately. If our plea is not enough for you to leave work early, The Guardian’s Jonathan Jones had this to say of the exhibition:

"Turks: A Journey of a Thousand Years, 600-1600, is the most spectacular exhibition of world art in London since... well, since the Royal Academy's Aztecs three years ago. It is beautiful, curious and hedonist as well as serious. This civilisation couldn't have been more completely brought to life in Piccadilly without reassembling a mosque in the courtyard of Burlington House. And they've come close: the show ends with the jewelled doors from a pavilion built by Sinan, the Ottoman Michelangelo."

For more information on how to get to there as well as opening and closing times visit the Turks website here.
