mar, 24th - tate modern....

this post is for you mandy......
take a look at the lovely 16house for sweet words about she had us at hello.....

day 411:

it's not a secret (unfortunately) or a new fad....but a lovely way to spend a weekend afternoon in London is at the incredible Tate Modern. housed in the former Bankside Power Station, it's the best kind of vast, industrial space providing huge walls for iconic art.

a gift that i love giving to friends, is membership to Tate. it gives you a year's access to all exhibitions at Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Tate Liverpool and Tate St Ives. plus you get to enjoy the members bars. as you walk into the the one at Tate Modern you are faced with a wall wide view of St Paul's Cathedral (which always makes me think of My Fair Lady).....such a beautiful dome. it also has a fantastic roof terrace for taking in the Thames and a view of London City.

it's well worth a visit.


  1. love 16 house -- thanks for the link!

  2. Oh Dee thank you, I love the Tate ... I love just walking into that amazing building, I'm long overdue for a visit.
