On our one free morning we went to the new "Tate Modern" art museum, housed in the former Battersea power station and located on the formerly unchic "Southbank."

The exhibits are thematically arranged and there is plenty of public space -- but I found the walking involved to be too much, particularly after the walk to the museum from the Southwark tube station. I also thought the building was ugly -- but then David liked it! So decide for yourself:)
