Arriving at Baker Street Underground on the Bakerloo Line from Paddington - can you see me?
Changing onto the Jubilee Line to Southwark
... and a 10 minute well sign posted walk
... to the Tate
Looking back as we entered to see the steam rising and folk disappearing into it!
A huge open space greeted us on the first floor where we met a very helpful guide who gave us some suggestions for our visit.
First stop at the top, floor 10
... with its 360° viewing platform
... our main reason for this visit
Looking down ...
Floor 6 was to be our next port of call but it was closed until midday so we made our way down each floor ...
... and took in some of the exhibition rooms
One of the exhibitions was Living Cities, in which some were strongly thought provoking, some were easy to interpret and some I could not understand at all - art?
I did like this one though, through the dark smudges you can, if you look very carefully, see beautifully buildings architecturally drawn. (click on it)
There were not many that I recognised
Down to floor 3 and another great vista
From the outside viewing platform we could hear a rather beautiful voice - busking.
I love to see St Paul's on the skyline
That's me ...
... that's George ... and me!
Lunch time and we leave the Tate for a while
... cross the Millennium Bridge
... round to the front of that beautiful cathedral to
Pret a Mange where they sell good food at an ok price
Another vista from the bridge as we return to ...
... floor 6 which is the Kitchen and Bar Restaurant
... with yet more views from yet another perspective
Just after 3pm we decided that that was enough, our brains were hurting trying to understand some of this stuff and we left the Tate to walk along the Embankment to clear our heads.
