I have loved Monet for years and a couple of years ago stayed in Giverny where we visited his home and gardens. This particular exhibition of Monet and Architecture was well curated and gave another level of insight into his work.

Saw some fabulous art work at the National Gallery. I am not a person that usually attends art museum but this is absolutely amazing. You'll need several hours to fully explore all the wonderful works of art here

When I get to London I never miss a visit to the gallery,and every time I discover new things I have not noticed before. Works of art by the greatest painters, arranged by periods and artists. It is highly recommended. Admission is free of charge.

I like nothing better than to spend a few hours here on my own just taking in the atmosphere. Hire a headset and be in awe. The building itself is amazing , beautiful inside and out. Visit you won’t be disappointed.
