This is always a delight to go to whenever I come to London. The Turner exhibit is amazing. You never know what hidden gem of art you’ll find on your next visit. Plus it’s free.

The building is magnificent, the collection even moreso. The Turner and Constable collections were especially moving. I realize that loving British landscapes of the 1700s and 1800s may not label me as an intellectual, but I loved every minute of our visit. Free, of course.

I really wanted to give the Tate Britain five stars but I had a terrible experience with one of the employees. But let’s start at the beginning. I was there to see the Turner Collection plus two Rodins that were suppose to be there. I...More

If you enjoy wonderful artwork, by all means visit the Tate Britain Museum! You will find the world's largest collection of Turner's works, along with hundreds of other famous artists going back centuries. The building itself is just beautiful. And we enjoyed an al fresco...More

What really made my day was the sculptures of Henry Moore. Magnificent! It reminded us of Carl Milles of Sweden.

Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than
most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely
residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames,
is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle
architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art
