Last year we went to the Tate Modern on a Saturday afternoon - don't!
Very crowded, and unless you really like modern art, save you time
altogether. A very unigue museum is Sir John Slone's (sp?), the home of
an early 19th century architect left as he when he died. He was a collector
of art and antiquities, and it is really different. We also liked the
National Portrait Gallery - as you walk through the famous paintings which
you have often seen of royalty and notables, you get an easy lesson in
English history. Plus their top-floor cafe has good food and a great view.
For history of the city, the Museum of London is good. Certainly do a London
walk from one of the several companies offering them. [I have much more
extensive notes about our travels in England; if someone wants them, drop
me a note off the list.]
