I'm off to London on Sunday, staying over until Monday, and thought I'd canvas oppinions on some things to see and do.

Looks like it may be raining most of the time we are there, OH is very into art and music, so any good new exhibitions about at the moment? I would quite like to see some photography exhibitions if there are any recommended?

Thanks

There's lots of really good arty stuff in Soho, and you'll have your eyeful of photographic exhibitions as well. On top of that there are a few good places to eat. Get youself down there, you know you want to.

In reply to balmybaldwin: This is easy.

Go to Greenwich. Ansel Adams photography exhibition. Then go to the Royal Observatory and check out Harrisons H1-4. The Cutty Sark is great too, you have the market for art and food. One stop shop and a great day out (you can buy a ticket that lets you into multiple attractions at the Cutty Sark) Also nice views over London from Greenwich park (which all the above is in or next to)

It's the other end of town from Greenwich (and Ansel Adams exhib is great) but the Wildlife Photog of the Year is still running at the Natural History Museum and is always worth a look.

Oh, and join a free tour at the National Gallery. I did with my my OH a couple of weeks ago and it was brilliant (even if we did slope off to go drink wine after 30mins or so)... Free, two per day.

And can anyone recommend a good pub lunch in Greenwich on Sunday? I'm going to Ansel Adams then.

ice age art has just opened at the british museum for a slightly different take.
National portrait gallery normally has a few running.

I've been dying to go to this, but just haven't had time. Probably not everyone's cup of tea, but the man is a legend in his field for a reason!
