Unless you?ve been marooned on an island, you?ll know that on 23 June, a small majority of British citizens voted to leave the EU. The decision shook the UK to its foundations, and has thrown up sharp divisions in the country.
I?ve always felt lucky to be able to travel freely across Europe, and visit the rich wealth of museums, galleries and historical sites across the continent. I?m concerned that access to these inspiring places might become more difficult now. That?s made me deeply sad. So this month, as well as giving a snapshot of cultural places that families can enjoy in the UK, I?ve included posts from some countries across Europe.
Not all 28 EU member states are represented here, and I?ve also included Norway and Switzerland, which are outside the EU. If you have any posts on European culture that you?d like to share, please post them in the comments below.
