Somerset House and Twinings

After the Tower I went over to the small art gallery at Somerset House, as it had received excellent reviews.  The gallery is small, but full of excellent works of art.  There was a special exhibit of Picasso's 1901 works which was excellent. The highlight was Manet's A Bar at the Folies-Bergère.

This is the best type of art gallery, only containing really good works, no "filler".  The way you don't waste energy looking at things that aren't that good.  

Looking up the spiral staircase at the gallery.
Then I walked over to the Twinings Tea Shop, which has occupied the same premises since 1706.  

Inside Twinings, it's only this wide!
