I've visited art museums in 30 or 40 countries, and this certainly is the worst. The exhibits are ordinary items...even trash or rope a stack of building materials...presented as art. Nothing there qualified as art as most people define it. What a hoax. Admission is...More

It’s perfectly placed right next to the Thames and next door to MI5 (oops, shouldn’t have said that...). Free entry too. The Turner collection is incredible in the number of paintings they have amassed and a lot of lesser-known ones. Other areas are separated by...More

I went to the Tate specifically to view the Aftermath exhibition. Well curated - with some interesting exhibits. Thought provoking arrangement of rooms and subjects. Members Room a good quiet area for tea/coffee.

Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than
most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely
