How can a museum cafe (often touted as very good food to match the museum's delight) be so utterly terrible? Well, it was as bad as the exhibits. The sandwich of egg and cress tasted like sawdust, and the bread was stale. Even the white...More

Popped in for a quick bite to eat, found some great sandwiches and desserts to tie us over. It was the perfect pit-stop in between the two Tate museums.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some

of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
