Turner tour of Kent
For the gallery's opening in 2011, we commissioned artist Stephen Turner to look at the artist JMW Turner’s relationship with Kent.

Stephen has selected 10 images that show the breadth of Turner’s work in Kent and invites visitors to travel to a number of locations around the county visited by the artist himself.

Download the tour below and travel through Turner's Kent at the bottom of this page.

The Independent have written a review of the tour, read it here.
