Until 2000, this museum on the bank of the Thames housed the UK’s contemporary art collection. Always an attractive museum, the galleries were cramped and too much was held in storage but the opening of Tate Modern has solved the problem, leaving the original building to concentrate on British art…
The first Tate for all Lovers of traditional Art. You can hop on a boat from one Tate to the other. Makes a lovely trip.
“Westminster Abbey, formally titled the Collegiate Church of Saint Peter at Westminster, is a large, mainly Gothic abbey church in the City of Westminster, London, England, just to the west of the Palace of Westminster.”
“Just a short walk away is Green Park with Buckingham Palace adjacent to it. Whilst you're there also visit St. James Park and Westminster.”
“*Pimlico Fresh – Casual and easy More a café than a restaurant, Pimlico Fresh is an enormously popular spot for brunch and lunch, and offers far heartier and more filling meals than your regular café. There are plenty of stews, pies, curries and soups on offer, all of which are freshly prepared and many of which offer non-standard, creative twists on staples. The two-room space is filled with large, communal tables with floor to ceiling blackboards displaying the day’s offerings. 86-87 Wilton Rd, Victoria, London SW1V 1DN £-££; KF ”
“Great for a casual stroll or exercising. Walk over Albert Bridge and then along the river inside the park. Grab a coffee at one of the cafe stands or visit the cafe by the lake for homemade cakes, sandwiches, salads and great tea and coffee.”
