Subject: Re: London info
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.]
