Just 15 minutes walk away over Vauxhall Bridge is the original Tate museum that shows great exhibitions, has a brilliant giftshop and a lovely (expensive) restaurant Rex Whistler (you may need to book).
Until 2000, this museum on the bank of the Thames housed the UK’s contemporary art collection. Always an attractive museum, the galleries were cramped and too much was held in storage but the opening of Tate Modern has solved the problem, leaving the original building to concentrate on British art…
One of the best collections of British art including Turners and Pre Raphaelites. Free entry and about a thirty minute walk from the flat.
The first Tate for all Lovers of traditional Art. You can hop on a boat from one Tate to the other. Makes a lovely trip.

“*Pimlico Fresh – Casual and easy More a café than a restaurant, Pimlico Fresh is an enormously popular spot for brunch and lunch, and offers far heartier and more filling meals than your regular café. There are plenty of stews, pies, curries and soups on offer, all of which are freshly prepared and many of which offer non-standard, creative twists on staples. The two-room space is filled with large, communal tables with floor to ceiling blackboards displaying the day’s offerings. 86-87 Wilton Rd, Victoria, London SW1V 1DN £-££; KF ”
