We visited The National Gallery in the vicinity. It housed Britain’s 2300 collection of art from the saints and serpents in the medieval galleries, to the iconic sunflowers and water lilies in the 19th century rooms.

We took a 60 minute self guided audio tour but were too tired to complete the tour. No photography inside the gallery.
