I’ve not been here for many years and had forgotten quite how amazing this place is. So many galleries with such varied works there really is something for everyone to enjoy. The curation is also spot on, making everything easy to access.

Went here specifically to see the Burne-Jones exhibition which was well worth seeing and very well curated. Also spent some time looking at the Turner paintings. Coffee very good in Djanogy cafe downstairs.

That’s a great museum. Surprisingly it contains not only “classical” paintings and sculptures (which are interesting enough on their own), but also many modern art halls. The building itself is beautiful- there is a small hall dedicated to its history. There is a nice cafe...More

Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than
most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely
residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames,
