This summer the Tate Modern is featuring Cy Twombly, big street art and urban photography. Could it get any better? Did we mention it has a decent café and plenty of nice restrooms? The balconies are a great place to sit and snack and look at the North Bank. Starchitects Herzog & de Meuron handled the renovation with panache and aplomb. If everyone’s up for it, walk to the museum over the Sir Norman Foster-designed, pedestrian-only Millennium Bridge from St. Paul’s.
Getting there: (Via the bridge) District/Circle lines to Blackfriars, walk to St. Paul’s then south.(Via Southbank) Northern line to London Bridge, walk west along Southbank
