Have You Seen?

“Have you seen the Heatherwick, darling? It almost makes one want to get on a No.38, especially as it goes to Hackney”.

The crowds at Thomas Heatherwick’s exhibition this summer, epitomised the London cultural scene. Fabulous the exhibition was too, albeit crammed into a V&A space the size of a 5-a-side football pitch. We glided around, doing our excuse-me shuffles that were not mitigated by timed tickets.

Before Picasso

The environs of Pimlico Tube Station can confuse the visitor. Roads splay off in an arbitrary arrangement. A sign indicates your exit to get to Tate Britain. It is eerily quiet.You move forward cautiously and weave round the curve of Bessborough Street. Wham bam; you are back in noisy London, with the thundering traffic of Vauxhall Bridge Road.
