South Bank

Some culture interspersed with pubs today.

The Tate Modern on the south bank has been a target for Ryan and I since we started planning this trip. It’s an easy underground to Blakfriar’s Station and walk across the Thames to the museum.  The free admission policy always surprises me, especially for such a well-respected museum.  Good stuff – a lot of really special modern work along with some pretty wierd installations.

After lunch at one of the Fuller pubs (The Prince William Henry), we hike down to the Imperial War Museum – about a 30 minute walk .  The WWI and Holocast exhibits are outstanding and quite moving.

It’s a pleasant, but cool evening so we take our time walking  back to the hotel with an occasional pub stop along the way.  Thankfully, there’s plenty of CAMRA rated places to choose from!
