Tour of Turner

Yesterday we went to see the Turner Collection at Tate Britain. This was my first visit and it is certainly impressive. I came away with lots of new ‘favourite paintings’.

One of the friends we went with, Themis, is a London Blue Badge Guide and she was practicing her “Turner Tour” which she has been researching and will give for the first time this week.

The tour was very good and if you are ever in London and want to hire her to give a tour of (literally) anywhere in London she is excellent. The cakes and coffee in the cafe are pretty good too.
