  •  I love the room at the V&A (5+ / 0-)

    with all the plaster casts. Michelangelo's David and Trajan's column lording it over all kinds of mixed up art history.
    Thanks for sharing this diary. I have been hustling around the less decorative parts  of Islington all day, and it's wonderful to be reminded of how lovely London can be.

    •  A lovely city (7+ / 0-)

      And a lot of it (once you get into the city's heart) is free to walk around and enjoy.  I can go to a museum for an hour and feel refreshed, no matter how awful the day has been (and I have had very few days that have been less than a treat, I must admit, so museum visiting is a happy cap to the day).

      •  I've got a season ticket (1+ / 0-)

        to Kew for those emergency spirit liftings. Kew because of the glass houses in the depths of winter, though Regents Park and Hyde Park are pretty darn cool.
