NFT London Pimlico (East)

Pimlico (East)

Hugging the curve of the Thames, this princely patch of Pimlico combines the stately Tate with imposing embankment architecture and ancient houses. Check out the old-money splendour of Vincent Street before grabbing lunch at the Regency, a true gem of a caf. Much fun can be had by pretending you actually live around here, so in this spirit head to the Morpeth as your local.

Tate Britain
Presumably designed for those not on the free booze and schmooze merry-go-round of gallery private views (me), Late at Tate gives us unconnected losers a chance to sample the delights of a gallery soirée for ourselves. The obvious downsides of this include having to pay for your own drinks (£3 bottles of beer), a distinct lack of complimentary canapés and being unceremoniously kicked out at 10 p.m. However, entry is free, and the Tate makes up for the lack of gratis victuals by putting on a range of talks, performances and films around the gallery, usually organised by a guest curator. On a recent visit these included a brief set from the very trendy XX Teens, a woman playing an enormous harp rather beautifully and the continuation of Martin Creed's current 'Work No. 850' (enthusiastic people charging around the gallery in shorts). Late at Tate Britain is the first Friday of each month, so maybe do a little diarising?
