Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Tate Modern extension


The Bankside power station, which is now the Tate Modern Art Gallery, has had a recent extension to the building. 



Reflections abound in local shops.







The brickwork of the extension is a work of art.















There is a viewing gallery which gives a 360deg view of London.


This is my favourite view which shows the Millennium Bridge between St Paul's Cathedral and the disused chimney of the power station.





Away from the river the view looks over at a new development of apartments. In fact you have a great view into the apartments.

If you want one there are still a few available from £5.95m. Imagine paying all that money to live in a human zoo.










Details here if you're keen

  1. Love the brick work on the Modern Tate - we went to the original Tate - one of my "must see" things in London while we were there (too short - how can you see a big city in one day?)
    Wow, it seems Eur. is a cauldron right now - just like the USA! Hope Britain gets quickly adjusted!)

  2. It's really lovely, and your reflections are fun. Someone asked me recently if I know London, and I said yes, yes I do. Because of you! :-)

  4. The brickwork is very nice. The apartments, no thank you, I don't like living in a glass house.

  5. I hate the Tate Modern, I really can't stand what they show as so called art and in my oppinion the building could well be putto better use. Saying that they have a good view from the place

  7. The brick work on the Tate is definitely art work. How weird those apartments have no privacy in their living rooms. Hello stalkers!

  9. That is amazing architecture. The Tate is my daughter and SIL's favourite Art Gallery. "A human Zoo" you are so right.

  10. Interesting architecture but what views. You really have to be seriously rich now to live to any kind of standard in inner London.

  11. Isn't that crazy? London is beyond wonderful, but as you show so beautifully, it can sure be enjoyed fully without living in that human zoo. Just crazy prices there -- and for that?

    Did love the addition to the Tate Modern and would love to visit it again.
