Tate Modern Switch Tower

Tate Modern Thoughts

Thursday, July 21st, 2016

First time at Tate Modern since the new Switch House opened on Saturday 9th July .  There are many good things: The Members bar (formerly members room) is now usable on a Saturday. The New members room is spacious. The 360 views from the top of the Switch House well worth getting to. However there […]

Annual summary of what I did on my holiday post… Bank of England Building open day & Museum well worth the visit but almost two hours of standing waiting to go in for a thirty minute tour might put off the less determined.  Really interesting to see rooms normally closed to the public and the […]

Ruin Lust at Tate Britain

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Ruin Lust seemed like an interesting concept for an exhibition – a survey of art focusing on ruins.  It’s an interesting exhibition looking at ruins in painting, drawing and photography along with (to a lesser degree) film, sculpture and literature.  The variety of ruins featured runs from castles to abbeys to imagined vistas of destroyed […]

The Physicists at the Donmar

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

My apologies this is one of those blog posts where I’ll do a bit of personal narrative before I get to the meat of the so called review which is in truth just my personal ramblings anyway. Chance can be a funny thing… while I’d planned out my days on a short trip to London […]
